Because we are the new
majority, together we rise

We build independent political power that centers historically marginalized communities so everyday Floridians shape the future.

Who We Are

We organize multi-racial movements to win elections, change laws, and create a state where everyone can be safe, happy, healthy and whole.

We’re a people-powered organization made up of members advancing economic and racial justice across Florida. Every individual has power but we have more power together.

Principles

Every individual has power, and we have more power together.

What We Do

EXPAND DEMOCRACY

For a government that works for all of us

Our communities won’t be stopped by barriers, voter suppression, or attempts to take away our vote. We educate, register, and mobilize voters as one key way of holding politicians accountable and making our voices heard.

climate justice
CLIMATE JUSTICE

For the planet and the people on it

We want a regenerative future and a just transition that puts frontline communities at the center of energy policy, disaster response, food policy, and all climate change initiatives.

housing justice
HOUSING JUSTICE

For a safe place to rest our heads and raise our families

Housing is a human right not a profit tool for greedy landlords. We fight for safe affordable homes, rent control, and development that doesn’t displace us.

gender and reproductive justice
GENDER AND REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE

For the freedom of our bodies and recognition of our full existence

We fight back against policies and practices that seek to control and restrict women and femmes’ bodies and the resources that serve us.

CRIMINAL SYSTEM REFORM

For investing in our communities, not policing them

A prison and police-only approach does the opposite of creating real safety in our communities. We work to end mass incarceration, defend immigrants, and eliminate laws that take away the vote from people with felony convictions.
