May 19, 2022
|Today, Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison traveled to Florida to host a listening session with LGBTQ and youth leaders in Orlando. Chair Harrison was joined by partners from Equality Florida, the Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus, and local youth activists to discuss recent anti-LGBTQ legislation being pushed by Governor Ron DeSantis.|

|Building on the DNC’s 57-state-and-territory strategy, these events are the latest in Chair Harrison’s community engagements across the South this week, which includes stops in Little Rock, Arkansas; Orlando and Miami, Florida; and Robeson County, North Carolina with rural, LGBTQ, youth, Latino, Black, AAPI, and Native community members.|
This community outreach comes as the DNC has committed more resources earlier than ever in a robust 57-state-and-territory strategy to invest in strong long-term party infrastructure. So far this cycle, the DNC has made almost $50 million in commitments and contributions to states for party-building and electoral programs. As part of this investment, the DNC and state parties last year announced a historic agreement to increase the DNC’s monthly State Party Partnership (SPP) funding by 25% and create a first-of-its-kind Red State Fund to invest in Democratic state parties’ efforts to sustain long-term programs in traditionally Republican states.
