2019 was a monumental year for us! We were instrumental in passing the bold and historic Dignity for Incarcerated Women Act and we registered more than 30,000 Floridians to vote.
The stakes are high for millions of Floridians in 2020. This year, we look forward to building the New Majority, more wins, more power and a more equitable and just Florida for all.
Here are some things we look forward to this year:
- Dignity For All Incarcerated Women & Girls
We are excited to keep bringing dignity for incarcerated women, femmes and girls in Florida through passing the Tammy Jackson Act that ends solitary confinement for pregnant women. All people deserve dignity.
- Build a Bigger Movement
In 2019, our membership grew 955 dues-paying members. For 2020, we want to double our membership and continue our work of building communities that are fighting for a just Florida.
- A Feminist Florida
We want to grow our Feminist People’s Assembly in Miami to advance a powerful agenda for all women and femmes in Florida.
- Elect Elizabeth Warren
In 2019, our member delegates from around the state voted to endorse Sen. Elizabeth Warren for President. In 2020, we want to see her become our first woman President. We want her to stick to her commitment of full transparency, ending corporate control of our electorate, to fight for reproductive justice and to support working-class people!
- Stop the $Dollar Trap
We want a state free of predatory fines and fees. In 2020, we will continue to teach our communities about $DollarTrap and how to make sure our families are protected.
- I AM WE 2020!
In 2019, we partnered with local organizations to provide more than $10,000 worth of resources to the Jacksonville community at no charge to them, with our I Am We events including free haircuts, school supplies, food, new shoes, and groceries. In 2020, we look forward to providing more resources to ensure families can be civically engaged.
- #DefundHate and #AbolishICE
In 2020, we want to defund hate and Abolish ICE. Our families belong together, safe and supported.
- Register 150,000 People to Vote
We registered over 30,000 Floridians in 2019 so they can vote and make their mark on our democracy. In 2020, we will register 150,000 voters in time for the 2020 elections!
- Everyone in Florida is Hurricane Ready
Protect our Communities in times of Climate Crisis: In 2019, we organized 600 volunteers to support the Community Emergency Operation Centers during hurricane season. In 2020, we will build our resiliency hubs, increase our volunteers, and disseminate/share information in English, Spanish, and Kreyol!
- Fight for Sustainable Futures
In 2020, we will fight for a sustainable future in Florida. We dream of getting communities in the right relationship with the land while organizing to get Miami to commit to transitioning to an equitable clean energy city.
- Unemployment Benefits for Domestic Violence Survivors
In 2020, we will continue to fight for survivors of domestic violence. Patriarchy is harming all of our communities, and we are dedicated to ending the system that continues to harm our Black and Brown women and families.
- Keep JEA Public
Thousands of Floridians want to #KeepJEAPublic. In 2020, we want to make sure the voices of the people of Jacksonville are heard and that the Jacksonville Electric Authority is not privatized.
- All Floridians counted in the 2020 Census
This year we will make sure all Floridians are counted, regardless of their language, gender, race or background. The 2020 census will help our communities get the resources we need to build a stronger future for our people!
- ReformHer Symposium
The ReformHer Symposiums are about uplifting the voices of incarcerated and families of incarcerated women and femmes in Florida. In 2020, we will continue to prioritize the needs of incarcerated women and femmes, as we continue to bring dignity to our incarcerated family.
- Growing the New Majority
In 2019, we opened two new offices in Broward and Duval county. In 2020 we want these offices to become community hubs for power building for Black and Brown communities, as well as a space to practice true democracy and equity for our fellow Floridians.
- Defeat Trump
Whether we remove Trump or vote him out in the 2020 Election, we look forward to having Trump and his administration out of the White House. We look forward to a country that accepts all people and putting power in the hands of the people!
- Women of Color Will Lead Movements
In 2020, we want more Black and Brown women leading our movement to create an equitable Florida. We want leadership teams building up women of color to be ready to step into leadership and end white supremacy, patriarchy, and capitalism.
- Bring Equality to Florida
The Equal Rights Amendment was approved by Congress but never fully ratified by the state of Florida. In 2020, we want women’s rights to be recognized by passing the Equal Rights Act to prevent sex-based discrimination into the Constitution.
- Build More Local Power
In 2019, our community members exercised amazing leadership and gained confidence in themselves to put their political power into action. In 2020, we want to build more political and local power in our communities to bring it home in 2020.
- Voting Rights are Human Rights
In 2020, we want voting rights restored to everyone including, returning citizens. Democracy works best when all voices are heard!
We hope that you will join us in making these 20 dreams come true. Power is built when community members believe our communities deserve to be better than what they are. Our communities are full of brilliance and potential. Let’s work together to make 2020 the year the power is in the hands of our people!
