Stay Woke Florida

June 18 @ 8:00 am - June 23 @ 5:00 pm

Join the Transformative Justice Coalition and many others as we take part in a (15) city rolling protest. June 18-23, 2023

Florida has become ground zero for suppressing democratic principles, ideas and academic freedom. Over the past months, Florida has passed or introduced legislation that has resulted in banning books focused on inclusion education; divested state funds from schools that practice principles of diversity, equity and inclusion; and has criminalized teaching of American History.

Many national organizations are teaming up with Florida local organizations to fight against the assault on democracy that is occurring in Florida. The combined team is planning a “Rolling Protest” throughout State of Florida to highlight our concerns and demand action. The “Rolling Protest” is designed to be one of many actions taken in the State of Florida to raise awareness and encourage the communities in Florida to stand up and fight back against the suppressive actions taken by Governor DeSantis and the State Legislature.

The John Lewis Votercades and Celebration Villages is a concept designed by the Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) that is used to raise a local community’s awareness about issues confronting the community and to encourage the community’s political participation to confront the local issues. TJC has utilized John Lewis Votercades in over 200 communities in multiple states throughout the nation to lift awareness and knowledge about elections and voting season. In every community that TJC has held a Votercade and Celebration Village, the voter participation in that district increased significantly. The Votercade and Celebration Village Concept is based upon having fun and bringing the community together to learn.

We are inviting you to support us by attending the event and/or volunteer.
