Women's March Florida:
2/15 Call To Action; Support Refugees!
Thursday February 16th, The Florida House will be voting on HB 427 at 9am. It seeks to withdraw our state from Federal Refugee Programs. This means that the organizations currently resettling Refugees in Florida would lose ALL of their federal funding. Without funding, these organizations can no longer serve incoming Refugees as well as Refugees still in the 90-Day stateside resettlement program.
Call your Florida House Representative TODAY! Tell them you are a constituent and that you are against HB 427. If you have a personal story about Refugees, or simply express the benefit you think Refugees are to our nation, all the better! Tell your representative that cutting federal funding to organizations resettling Refugees is unacceptable.
