Write a Letter to your Representative: Don't let us forget the atrocities of our past. Don't pass the "Stop Woke" act.
The DeSantis “Stop W.O.K.E Act,”
State legislatures across the United States have recently passed laws in response to the social progress and racial justice conversations happening in our country. Florida Republicans want to control what people say and read and even ensure that Floridians don’t feel “uncomfortable” when discussing race, sex, color, or national origin. America’s history is not perfect and requires that we all strive to make our country “A MORE PERFECT UNION.”
This bill allows certain books and curricula to be banned from schools, licensing, and employment training.
Miami-Dade Representative Brian Avila, the bill’s sponsor and a former Broward adjunct teacher, could not identify how any of this would work. Lawsuits have been filed around the country for a violation of the First Amendment. This law gives individuals the ability to sue if they feel that they have been violated as a result of a training that teaches them the parts of history with which they are uncomfortable. Critical Race Theory bans have been passed in Idaho, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Arizona, and North Dakota.
Let's stop this bill before it becomes law.
