LGBT+ National organizations such as HRC, GLAAD, and The Task Force have remained silent and useless as usual.
The NAACP is now the fifth organization that has called for a travel advisory/boycott of Florida.
Via WTSP Florida:
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People on Saturday issued a travel advisory for the state of Florida.
According to the NAACP national headquarters, the advisory is a “direct response to Governor Ron DeSantis’ aggressive attempts to erase Black history and to restrict diversity, equity, and inclusion programs in Florida schools.”
The advisory reads in part: “Florida is openly hostile toward African Americans, people of color and LGBTQ+ individuals. Before traveling to Florida, please understand that the state of Florida devalues and marginalizes the contributions of, and the challenges faced by African Americans and other communities of color.”
The NAACP said its advisory comes in direct response to DeSantis’ “aggressive attempts” to erase Black history and restrict diversity, equity and inclusion programs in Florida schools.
