Vote Like Life Depends on It

Vote like life depends on it because it does. In less than a month, Americans will go to the polls to cast ballots in what will likely be one of the most consequential elections in our nation's history. Every election has essential policy questions. But the 2022 midterms quite literally weigh the importance of life. Americans can weigh in on the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade by voting for or against candidates who support or oppose abortion. Political strategists and pollsters say support or opposition to Roe versus Wade could be the deciding factor in elections where the races are close. I hope and pray that it is. I am praying for voters to support life candidates.

DeSantis: A Repeat Offender of Black Floridians

Gadsden County Courthouse—Standing beneath the infamous hanging tree, Congressman Al Lawson, Gadsden County Commissioner Brenda Holt, Tallahassee Attorney Mutaqee Akbar and Pastor Tracey Stallworth wanted and explanation. They said Governor Ron DeSantis’s latest insult to African Americans in Gadsden County went too far. It was about Jeff Moore, appointed by DeSantis to the Gadsden County Commission three months ago. He abruptly resigned September 23 when a picture surfaced of him in Klu Klux Klan garb. For the Black community it was a stunning rebuke of their citizenry in the only predominantly Black County in Florida. DeSantis offered no explanation or apology. Meanwhile, his audacity makes news nationwide.

Congressman Al Lawson says DeSantis continues to disrespect and discriminate against Black Floridians.
