FLORIDIANS FOR A FAIR SHAKE BELIEVES FAMILIES BELONG TOGETHER

WEST PALM BEACH — Grassroots advocacy organization Floridians for a Fair Shake issued the following statement on the Families Belong Together rallies happening on Saturday, June 30 from Organizer Maria Torres-Lopez:

“Floridians for a Fair Shake is a grassroots advocacy organization that works to make Florida and our country a more just nation. We bring attention to the inequality between the wealthiest one percent and the rest of us on issues such as health care and taxes. These discrepancies are perpetuated by the same people who support the idea that some people should be less valued than others. Seeking asylum in the United States is not a crime, and our government should get out of the business of separating families and creating generational trauma.

“Floridians for a Fair Shake supports the immigrant community because we are all immigrants, and because we believe in human rights regardless of one’s status. We believe Families Belong Together.”
