Democrats have a long and proud history of defending civil rights and expanding opportunity for all Americans. From the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009, Democrats have fought to end discrimination in all forms. For too many Floridians, though, this ideal is still far from a reality. We will fight the GOP’s attempts to purge the voting rolls and suppress our votes, and we will fight to ensure that GLBT Floridians win equal rights. Democrats will always stand up for those who continue to be denied their basic civil rights.
