Florida Democratic Party Unveils Latinos Against Trump! With DNC Chair Tom Perez

Sign the Latinos Against Trump petition here! 

The Florida Democratic Party today announced the launch of the petition Latinos Against Trump! during a roundtable on Hispanic and Latino health care issues headlined by Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez. A Spanish language version of the petition can be found HERE.

Terrie Rizzo, chair of the Florida Democratic Party, said it is important to lift up Hispanic and Latino voices:

“Hispanics have the most to lose from Donald Trump’s attempts to destroy health care coverage and his ineffectiveness in reining in high drug prices. Since the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, Hispanics have experienced the largest gains in health coverage, but still, have some of the highest rates of those without health insurance.

That is why we are launching our petition Latinos Against Trump! We hear Donald Trump’s false claims constantly, but we also need to hear from Hispanics who are harmed by his destructive policies and misinformation. Latinos Against Trump! raises up the voices of Hispanics and puts faces to the damage that Trump is doing to Hispanics.”

The event today included DNC Chair Tom Perez, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo; Alianza for Progress director of communications, Adriana Rivera; Borinquen Medical Center president and CEO, Paul Velez; State Representative Cindy Polo (HD-103); SEIU Local 1991 President Martha Baker; and Latino health care stakeholders. The full event can be viewed HERE.
