Rolling Protest Inspires Thousands

The Rolling Protest was launched in response to the authoritarian, racist and backwards policies of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida State Legislature. The policies were aimed to stop the teaching of black history in state funded schools; to stop the implementation and funding of diversity, equity and inclusion principles and programs at postsecondary institutions; to ban books addressing issues of self-appreciation and inclusivity; to attack the rights of the LGBTQIA community; to curb the existence of labor unions; to censor and criminalize teaching in public and private school classrooms; and to limit and destroy the Reproductive Freedom of Women in Florida.
