Florida governor Ron DeSantis and his vile coven of theocratic zealots are going pedal to the metal in their hysterical, paranoid, and gleefully authoritarian efforts to stamp out any and all dissenting political thought.
Their latest assault on civil rights and the First Amendment is the passage of the "Stop WOKE Act," which "makes it unlawful for Florida employers to require employees to undergo training or experience instruction that includes any of eight forbidden 'concepts' regarding race, sex, religion, or national origin."
Call on the courts to throw out Ron DeSantis' unconstitutional attempt to police speech in the workplace!
Under the new law, the discussion of white or male privilege is banned, as is any discussion of oppression — except if it isn't an endorsement. Employers can tell their employees that white privilege doesn't exist, but disagreeing with DeSantis is now illegal.
This is an outrageous attack on free speech that has already sparked lawsuits from Florida companies, one of which has been allowed to move forward. But it's clear this is only the beginning of DeSantis' efforts to entrench white supremacist ideology in our institutions and society — and that it'll only get worse if we don't vote them out once and for all!
Call on the courts to overturn Ron DeSantis' attack on the First Amendment!
