The time has come for Florida
We’ve observed the political landscape become increasingly divisive in America since the 2016 presidential election, and as we head to the polls on Nov. 6 to elect a new governor and other pertinent elected officials, (mid-term) the African American community must galvanize like never and elect Andrew Gillum as the next governor.
