The Future Now Fund has been instrumental in helping Democratic candidates raise money to cover all necessary expenses to inform, engage and motivate people to get involved and VOTE. I am humbled to be among them and many other candidates who care enough to put in so much time and effort to bring compassionate, thoughtful and logical decission making back to this country.
“Florida’s legislature helped deliver the state to Trump in 2016: Hillary Clinton lost the state by just 119,770 votes while state law disenfranchised 1.5 million residents through permanent voting bans for former felons, which meant one in four black residents were unable to cast a ballot. And the current majority is looking to repeat history in 2020. Electing a new majority in the Florida House will protect re-enfranchisement and create the chance to move legislation that improves lives.”
Dolores is a tireless advocate for Latinx communities and deeply understands the urgency to provide and expand affordable healthcare services to all Floridians. She is running to bring responsible leadership to Tallahassee.
“The majority in the Florida legislature is doubling down on the same strategy that has kept them in power since the 1990s: preventing Floridians from exercising their right to vote and selling the state to vested special interests:
- Overturned a popular referendum to restore felon voting rights by implementing what is effectively a poll tax: requiring fees be paid up in full before voting rights are restored.
- Fought all efforts to expand Medicaid—leaving over half a million Floridians without health insurance.
- Consistently sided with the gun lobby instead of advocating for the personal safety of individuals and protecting public safety—even post Parkland.
- Consistently blocked bills that protect LGBTQ folks from discrimination at work.”
