For the Florida we love

By Julie Hauserman - December 27, 2017

Your inbox is probably like mine right now: filled with lots of messages asking you to support a great cause. In addition to supporting other good causes, I hope you’ll join me in making a contribution to support Progress Florida’s important work.

You’ve probably heard that 2018 is a big election year, and a referendum on Donald Trump. But for us Floridians, it’s much more than that. It’s a referendum on eight years of destructive and backwards policies by Gov. Rick Scott and his allies in the legislature. Perhaps most important of all, it’s a referendum on the future of our state as we consider a multitude of amendments to the Florida Constitution. Progress Florida’s mission of educating, engaging, and energizing Floridians from Pensacola to Key West simply could not be more important than it is right now.

As we saw throughout this year, when progressives organize, mobilize, and fight back, we stand a good chance at winning even against seemingly impossible odds. In 2018, with your help, Progress Florida will be: 

  • Fighting fracking, protecting our land and water, and safeguarding our state parks.
  • Protecting our health care from attacks by Congress or the Florida Legislature and promoting universal health care for every Floridian.
  • Opposing the backwards economic policies of Gov. Scott and his legislative allies that rig Florida’s economy for the wealthy and well-connected.
  • Unapologetically supporting reproductive freedom and stopping attacks on abortion rights.

...And much more.

Join me and support Progress Florida’s efforts to turn 2017’s momentum into big victories for progressives in 2018.

Progress Florida is here for the long haul because grassroots support from Floridians like you keeps us fighting.

Thanks for reading and for being a part of the fight for the Florida we love.

For progress,

Julie Hauserman,
President - Progress Florida Board of Directors
