Equality Florida Action PAC, Florida’s largest political committee working to elect pro-equality candidates, announced the endorsement of Eunic Ortiz for Florida State Senate.
“Since 1997, Equality Florida has led the charge for full protections and rights for LGBTQ Floridians. Their legislative advocacy and electoral support for LGBTQ candidates up and down the ballot is helping break barriers and shatter glass ceilings,” said Eunic Ortiz, Candidate for Florida State Senate, District 24. “When Republicans used trans youth as pawns last year when debating and ultimately passing the bill banning trans youth from playing sports as their chosen gender, Equality Florida was there to push back on this discriminatory legislation. They recognized the importance of leadership that centers people and their experiences. I am honored to have earned the endorsement of Equality Florida and am committed to being the kind of leader who puts people first. When we win this campaign in November, we will continue to stand up for our rights and be able to deliver on solutions for our affordable housing crisis, low wages, and Tampa Bay’s waterways in the Florida Senate.”
“Florida Senate District 24 is going to be one of the most competitive state legislative races of 2022, and we’re putting a marker down for our members and supporters early and clearly,” said Equality Florida Senior Political Director Joe Saunders. “Eunic Ortiz has a long history of fighting for all marginalized people, especially LGBTQ communities. Eunic is on the cusp of making Sunshine State history as one of the first out lesbians elected to the Florida Senate. Having Eunic in the Florida Senate would be a game changer for LGBTQ Floridians. It is imperative we make this seat work for LGBTQ families in Pinellas.”
Equality Florida Action PAC joins several statewide advocacy groups who support Eunic in her run for State Senate including the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Ruth’s List, and the Florida Immigrant Coalition.
