Ron DeSantis has announced he is running for President. It's absolutely crucial that we come together to resist Ron DeSantis and his regressive agenda, which is riddled with homophobia, transphobia, anti-feminism, and bigotry. Let's shed light on some of his latest attacks that demand our attention:
First, he imposed a ban on books, curtailing intellectual freedom and limiting access to diverse perspectives. Additionally, Desantis targeted drag shows, unfairly singling out a vibrant and inclusive form of artistic expression. He further obstructed progress by halting the implementation of curricula that would educate students about the rich history of Black communities. Furthermore, DeSantis signed a highly restrictive 6-week abortion ban, infringing upon reproductive rights. His actions also infringed upon the rights of minors by making it illegal for them to access gender-affirming healthcare. In a disheartening move, he approved the "Don't Say Gay" bill, effectively silencing LGBTQ+ voices in K-12 education. Lastly, DeSantis signed discriminatory bills pertaining to transgender bathroom access and participation in sports.
It's time for us to march against these injustices and fight for a more inclusive, equitable future.
