“No matter what happens, the sun will rise in the morning.”

That’s what President Obama told the country yesterday in an election night address.

He was right. We know last night was rough for a lot of us. But the sun did come up this morning and one thing is clear: our work is more important than ever. 

Across Florida, many campaign offices are packing up and closing down. But not Progress Florida. In the wake of Donald Trump’s win, we’re rolling up our sleeves and getting back to work.

Even last night, we won important electoral victories right here in Florida, including defeating Amendment 1, the deceptive anti-solar amendment bankrolled by big utilities.

We’re short on words to explain last night, but not short on resolve. We’re going to be here tomorrow and each day after fighting for you. There’s a lot of work ahead of us. 

If watching Donald Trump win the presidency made you want to do something to stand up to bigotry and hatred, we’re right there with you. We need you now more than ever. You can get started by giving a little to Progress Florida today to power us into 2017.

Progress Florida is a permanent voice for progress in our state, and we’ll continue to hold our elected officials accountable while advocating for equality, economic fairness, reproductive freedom, environmental protection and more.
