Join us for our next “We Make the Way” Facebook live segment discussing the upcoming 2021 Florida Legislative Session.
Amid everything else, Florida's 2021 legislative session officially begins on March 2. Our state leaders need to hear from us during this process.
We are already tracking dozens of bills relating to civil rights and civil liberties – a list that will soon grow to hundreds of pieces of legislation. Some of the dangerous bills we're tracking include Gov. DeSantis' anti-peaceful protest bill, and a 20 week abortion ban. Other bills include those we are excited about, such as a bill that would give incarcerated people the ability to earn more rehabilitation credit, and a variety of police reform bills.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, most of our advocacy work will take place online. We hope you can join in on these efforts to protect and advance our civil liberties.
