What could we learn from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in today’s political climate?

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.”

Florida Man attempts to silence Rebekah Jones. Stand against Ron DeSantis

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.

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.

In English: Statement regarding Capitol riot and attempted coup

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
(202) 225-3931
(305) 668-2285

District 26: Carlos Giménez

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.

Statement from the Miami-Dade Democratic Party regarding the Capitol riot and attempted coup

The Miami-Dade Democratic Party stands in support of the invocation of the 25th amendment, impeachment, or any other actions of constitutional justice to ensure Donald Trump can no longer put our country in danger. We urge Mario Diaz-Balart, Rick Scott, Marco Rubio, and Carlos Giménez to step down immediately for being complicit in the attempted coup.

En español: Declaración del Partido Demócrata de Miami-Dade sobre el amotinamiento en el Capitolio y el intento de golpe de estado

We support Joe Biden and our federal, state and local Miami-Dade officials in all they are doing to stand up for honor, integrity and justice in and through our government as we move toward healing.

We recognize that over half a million voters in Miami-Dade voted for Donald Trump this past November. We want to hear more and understand the issues that motivated them to support a president who has so often used his voice to divide us. We believe Democratic Party values benefit all Americans, creating opportunity for more to succeed, and we hope to demonstrate this over the next four years led by Joe Biden at a national level, and Daniella Levine-Cava at the county. Now, more than ever, we must work together to solve the many problems that we will face in the times ahead.

Miami-Dade Democratic Party Condemns Congressman Diaz-Balart for his Attempts to Subvert Democracy and Overturn an American Election

MIAMI-DADE, FL: After Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R, FL-25) signed an amicus brief joining Texas’s lawsuit that seeks to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, the Miami-Dade Democratic Party condemned his actions as frivolous and anti-democratic. 

Miami-Dade Democratic Party Chair Steve Simeonidis issued the following statement:

“Congressman Diaz-Balart should stay focused on his job representing the people of Miami-Dade in Congress, and help pass direct payments to families in his district affected by the health and economic crisis of COVID-19. It is an embarrassment to the State of Florida that he and Attorney General Ashley Moody would waste taxpayer dollars on this frivolous lawsuit.”

The President of the Miami-Dade Cuban American Club, Horacio Sierra, added the following statement:

“We wish that Congressman Diaz-Balart, who is such a stalwart champion of democracy in Cuba, would stop trying to subvert democracy in the United States. His hypocrisy is galling.”
