TALLAHASSEE – Floridian leaders statewide and advocates will hold a virtual press event the day before Tuesday’s opening of the 2023 Florida Legislative Session, where they will call for an end to political interference in Florida’s schools and universities, expanding Medicaid, protecting abortion rights, stronger efforts to safeguard our waterways and to address climate change, and criminal justice reform. And they will call out Gov. Ron DeSantis and legislative leaders for their corporate-driven agenda that continues to harm Floridians and their families. Speakers will unite behind a “People’s Budget” and advocate for a government that works for the people of Florida, rather than big tax-bucking corporations and wealthy campaign donors.

“Our state government works very efficiently, just not for the people of this great state,” said Rev. Rhonda Thomas, executive director of Faith in Florida. “Over the past four years, the people of Florida have watched Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Florida Legislature run our state not for the people, but in tandem with wealthy corporations and billionaire donors.”
