Williams supports the DECF position that there is a direct connection between environmental health and human health. DECF President, Dr. Janelle Christensen says, “For 8 years, this seat was run by someone who believed who constantly voted to override local attempts to protect their environment: voted against local plastic regulations and regulating chemicals in sunscreens that hurt coral reefs. It didn’t matter how many of his constituents he hurt. Shawn Williams can undo that damage.”— Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida
Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates issues third slate of 2020 campaign endorsements
TALLAHASSEE– As Floridians continue to face the COVID-19 pandemic and the continued injustices against that our Black communities face, the stakes for our rights, freedoms, and health has never been higher. Today the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates issued its third slate of endorsements for the critical 2020 election. Our endorsed candidates believe that every Floridian deserves the right to lead their lives and raise their families in a safe and healthy environment, free of policies that create barriers to their reproductive freedom.
Every candidate receiving this endorsement is committed to supporting medically appropriate and scientifically based health care policies, and opposing legislation that puts unnecessary restrictions on women in order to limit access to safe, legal abortion and shut down health centers.
“Floridians want leaders who will stand up for their reproductive healthcare rights” said Lillian Tamayo, Board Member of the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates . “Our endorsed candidates have demonstrated a strong commitment to make sure that everyone can access the care they need — no matter what.”
“As the threats to Floridians’ abortion rights and access to birth control continues to grow, the importance of electing candidates that will protect access to reproductive health care is increasingly vital.” said Stephanie Fraim, Board Member of the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates. “We are proud to endorse these reproductive health care champions who will show strong leadership in the face of attacks against reproductive freedom.”
