Floridians for Democracy Institute

A network of social justice advocates dedicated to saving and preserving democracy

About Floridians for Democracy Institute

Floridians For Democracy Institute works to defend our democratic process and promote social justice in the Sunshine State. We connect  advocates dedicated to saving and preserving democracy by helping link individuals and organizations to achieve shared goals, create connections throughout a wide community, and speak with a louder voice.

We envision a state of Florida where all elected leaders proactively implement laws ensuring all residents have equal opportunity, regardless of race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation as granted by democratic freedoms dictated in the constitution.

Floridians for Democracy is standing up to confront and fight the erosion of freedoms in Florida and save democracy for all residents. We invite you to join us.

We cannot be silent. We cannot be indifferent.
