PHOTOS: DNC Chair Harrison Hosts Listening Session with Haitian and Latino Community Leaders in Florida
May 20, 2022
|Today, Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison traveled to Miami, Florida to host a listening session with Haitian and Latino community leaders and the Florida Democratic Party. During the events Chair Harrison highlighted that while Republicans like Ron Desantis, Marco Rubio and Rick Scott are focused only on pushing their extreme MAGA agenda – including a plan that could end the guarantee to Social Security and Medicare, raising health care costs, and banning abortion with no exceptions for rape and incest – President Biden and Democrats are fighting to lower costs for working Americans and protect reproductive freedom for all.
Please see below for photos from the event:
|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.
