Party will organize days of action to reach out to pertinent officials and committees ahead of their review of the Legislation
The Miami-Dade Democratic Party voted to oppose House Bill 1 / Senate Bill 484 and denounce the legislators who support these unconstitutional filings. These bills were filed in January, disguised as a reaction to the Capitol insurrection. In reality, the legislation had been drafted and press advised months in advance, in an attempt to discourage grassroots protesting.Read more
The Miami-Dade Democratic Party voted to censure Miami Beach Commissioner Ricky Arriola, currently registered as a Democrat. Over the past year, Arriola amplified unproven COVID-19 treatments, pushed herd immunity, advocated for jailing Dr. Fauci, and compared the treasonous Capitol insurrection to the Black Lives Matter human rights movement.Read more
On Tuesday, February 2nd, a story in the Palm Beach Post laid out a startling revelation about the priorities of leaders in our state Senate. After more than 3 million Floridians have filed more than 6 million unemployment claims, Democratic state senators and state representatives have filed 6 different bills that attempt to address the many shortcomings of the Florida unemployment system.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a day for reflection. A day for service to our community. And an opportunity to remember with our family and friends, the legacy of a man who taught us how to use our words and peaceful actions to stand for justice, and bring lasting change to a nation in need of providing greater equality for its citizens.
Words from the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.:
“Don't ever let anyone pull you so low as to hate them. We must use the weapon of love. We must have the compassion and understanding for those who hate us. We must realize so many people are taught to hate us that they are not totally responsible for their hate. But we stand in life at midnight; we are always on the threshold of a new dawn.”
Ron DeSantis has failed us on COVID-19. His administration has spread misinformation about the epidemic and prevented local governments from taking steps to protect the people they serve. Now he appears to be cracking down on Rebekah Jones, one of his most outspoken critics.
Jones ran Florida's COVID-19 dashboard until May 2020, when she was fired for "insubordination." Jones says that she was fired because she refused orders to manipulate data. In December her home was raided by state agents. This weekend a warrant was issued for her arrest, although Jones has not been told what she's being charged with.
Ron DeSantis and his lackeys have lied to us about COVID-19, and repeatedly downplayed the severity of the epidemic, all to cover up for the failure of his administration and his hero, Donald Trump, to keep us safe.
As Democrats, we believe that everyone belongs in the "beloved community" that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed about. Service to others is one of the ways that we make that dream into a reality—that's why we want to share the following volunteer opportunities to honor the life and legacy of Dr. King.
Declaración del Partido Demócrata de Miami-Dade sobre el amotinamiento en el Capitolio y el intento de golpe de estado
El Partido Demócrata de Miami-Dade se manifiesta en apoyo de que se invoque la Enmienda 25, de que se inicie el proceso de destitución, y de cualquier otra medida de justicia constitucional que asegure que Donald Trump no pueda poner a nuestro país en peligro. Instamos a Mario Díaz-Balart, Rick Scott, Marco Rubio, y Carlos Giménez a renunciar inmediatamente por su complicidad en este intento de golpe de estado.
Apoyamos a Joe Biden y a los funcionarios federales, estatales y locales en todo lo que hacen por defender el honor, la integridad y la justicia en el gobierno a medida que avanzamos en el esfuerzo por sanar el país.
Reconocemos que más de 500,000 residentes de Miami-Dade votaron por Donald Trump el pasado noviembre. Queremos escucharlos y entender las razones por las que apoyaron a un presidente que con tanta frecuencia ha utilizado su voz para dividirnos. Consideramos que los valores demócratas benefician a todos en el país, creando oportunidades para que más de nosotros salgamos adelante. Esperamos demostrarlo durante los próximos cuatro años con el liderazgo de Joe Biden a nivel nacional y de Daniella Levine-Cava en el condado. Ahora, más que nunca, debemos trabajar juntos para resolver los muchos problemas que enfrentaremos en el futuro próximo.
Call to action 🇺🇸✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿🇺🇸
There is still hope that Republicans representing Miami-Dade in Congress will do the right thing and vote to impeach Trump. Keep their phones busy...
District 27: Maria Elvira Salazar
District 26: Carlos Giménez
District 25: Mario Díaz-Balart
We also need people to call conservative radio talk shows and express their thoughts. We must get out of our bubbles and remind those who voted for Trump about the dangers of his demagoguery.
