We are all concerned by the escalation of conflict with Iran being conducted by the (impeached) president, but we cannot let it distract us from important issues at home. Our legislators will soon be heading up to Tallahassee to fight for issues that affect our lives every day, issues like fair wages, health care, women's rights, LGBT protection, voting access, gun safety, and our precious environment.
Come and have drinks with State Senators Jose Javier Rodriguez, Annette Taddeo, and Jason Pizzo, and State House Representatives Joe Geller, Kionne McGhee, Shevrin Jones, Nick Duran, Dotie Joseph, Michael Grieco and more. Hear what's on their minds and share with them the issues that matter to you.Read more

Record-Breaking 2019 Blue Gala
The Miami-Dade Democratic Party set records for fundraising and attendance at its annual Blue Gala this weekend, illustrating a new level of energy for Democrats in Florida’s biggest county one year before the presidential election. Presented under the theme, “It’s on Us,” the gala’s keynote speaker was Congressman Hakeem Jeffries and featured Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried. Seven community and elected leaders were honored, highlighted by former Miami Dade College president Eduardo Padron receiving the local party's lifetime achievement award.
The Gala raised over $360,000, a record for the local party. For context, that's more than double the amount the Miami-Dade Democratic Party raised at its gala year ago. With more than 550 attendees, it was also the largest gala the Miami-Dade Democrats have ever presented.
