We are so glad you are joining us for the People’s Inauguration in Tallahassee. We are coming together with our partners to let the new administration know that most Floridians want a Florida for All, inclusive, safe and beautiful, and we reject DeSantis politics of division and fear. 

Please read carefully the information below and be Tallahassee-ready!

Lodging: 

  • We will be staying in shared rooms at the Best Western Plus Hotel in Tallahassee (South Florida delegation) and in the Country Inn and Suites (Jacksonville delegation).  If you need a single room, we will ask you to pay for the additional cost. Please email serena@newfloridamajority by Friday if you need a single room.
  • Breakfast is included at the Hotel.
