NAACP Florida State Conference Calls on Governor to Remove All Confederate Symbols

NAACP Florida State Conference Calls on Governor to Remove All Confederate Symbols at the State Capitol and Requests Legislative Leaders to Support A Ban From Public Property Statewide

 “The NAACP is against all forms of hate, racism, and discrimination.  With the hatred and pure evil on display in Charlottesville, this movement now appears to have its sights on Florida to incite violence and to create major disruption.  It’s time for our Governor, State Senators and State Representatives to show leadership.  We are demanding the Governor immediately remove all Confederate statues, flags and memorials from our State Capitol grounds in Tallahassee.  We call on all members of the Florida Legislature to stand together and to end the bigotry that has divided us for too long and support a bill banning all Confederate statues, flags and memorials from public grounds across the State of Florida.   We are and will continue to be steadfast and immovable in the fight against discrimination, prejudice and hatred,” says Adora Obi Nweze, President of NAACP Florida State Conference and member of the National Board of Directors
