Democratic Black Caucus of Florida Converges in Orlando | Free Press of Jacksonville
It was a great conference in Orlando setting the stage for a successful election cycle for Democrats across the state. Attendees left with a firm commitment to return to their respective counties and work hard to elect Democratic candidates at all levels of government.
Black Democrats remain a solid block of support for Democrats everywhere. The conference underscored the need for our members to identify and support more Black candidates for elective office to augment the roster of other viable Democratic candidates. The Empowerment Breakfast featured extremely talented and experienced Black female elected officials and Party leaders who make it easy to believe we're in good hands with them in political leadership roles.
Training sessions and workshops added great value to the conference and provided registrants with strategies and tactics to help Democrats win local, statewide and national races. The Milton Morris Founders Luncheon was the perfect platform for Congresswoman Corrine Brown to fire-up the troops. And, the Gala Dinner on Saturday night was a fitting conclusion to an outstanding conference. The Honorable Hakeem Jeffries, US Congressman from New York reminded guests that regardless to the challenges we face, we can triumph over them.
Let's get busy. VOTE BLUE!
