Our Values

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.10″]

We Believe In…

As Democrats and as Floridians, we share a common set of values that can be boiled down to one seemingly simple belief: We believe in the people of Florida.

Regardless of who you are, where you are from, or who you love, Democrats believe that every Floridian has value, that every Floridian should be heard, and that the only way for our country to succeed – the only way for our state to succeed – is if everyone is able to share in that success.

We support the rights of all people to be treated fairly under the law.

The Democratic Party stands for education and the opportunity it represents for all Floridians.

We support all Florida families in their pursuit of the American Dream.

We support farmers and small business owners as they seek to build a good life for their communities, while also protecting and nurturing the natural resources that are a foundation of our state.

We believe that our military members and veterans deserve our support in peace time and in war time.

We believe the elderly have the right to be treated with dignity.

We believe in the preservation and expansion of Social Security and Medicare.

We believe in responsible gun ownership and common sense gun safety.

We believe that our foreign policy should be one of cooperation to find peaceful, prosperous solutions for all peoples around the globe.

The Democratic Party condemns all forms of discrimination, whenever the rights of any citizens are threatened the rights of all citizens are endangered.

Above all, we believe that Florida should be a shining example of justice, equality, and prosperity for all.

What We Are Fighting For…

Every Floridian has an ally and an advocate in the Democratic Party.

It’s time for us to put the people back in charge, and that is exactly what Democrats are going to do in 2018.

We’re going to go out and fight for fully-funded schools that will give our children the future they deserve.

We’re going to fight to make sure that every single person is has economic security with a job that pays them – not just a minimum wage – but a living wage.

We’re going to fight for every Floridian to love who they love and be who they are.

We’re going to fight to make sure that communities have the support they need and finally clean up our environment.

We’re going to fight for every woman to make her own decisions about her own body.

We’re going to fight for every Floridian’s right to health care.

Simply put – We are going to fight for the people of Florida.

March for our Lives

On March 24th the community members of Lee County from all walks of life came together to exercise their first amendment in order to improve school safety. “This march has been held in order to bring together people who have been energized by the activism that has been sprouting across the United States,”said Maxwell Slafer who is a student at Cape Coral High School. From political leaders to student activists the March For Our Lives has brought together the views of the youth as well as concerned individuals of our society.
Similar to the march at Centennial Park in Fort Myers, marches have been conducted nationwide generating a sense of unity among the youth of America in working towards school safety and gun reform. “Students are taking charge and I’m glad to fall along with the wave,” said Todd James Truax who will be running for congress during the upcoming elections.
