Statement from Jasmine Burney-Clark, founder of Equal Ground, reacting to DeSantis signing SB 266

“Today, Governor DeSantis has continued his tirade against Black, Brown, minority, and LGBTQ+ Floridians in his latest attempt to erase and silence our experiences and realities in America. When DeSantis first came for public education he claimed he was ‘protecting’ children, but now as he silences the conversations in the halls of higher education, it is clear in no uncertain terms that all he cares about is erasing any experience but his own. We will not be silent and allow the Governor’s attempts to rewrite history and silence our existences to go unchecked. Diversity, equity and inclusion matters and we call on everyone to embrace this reality as we strive to foster a more tolerable and understanding world.”
