10/ And, this phenomenal essay from our friend @NadegeGreen: https://t.co/P6N07oaYkx “Protest is a part of our legacy as Black people & it's a FL tradition to criminalize it. @GovRonDeSantis is playing from a Jim-Crow era playbook.” — @Dreamdefenders on @NadegeGreen's essay

9/ Commissioner @Gail4Gville’s op-ed: ‘Anti-protest legislation undercuts our liberty' @gainesvillesun https://t.co/HeLyAj87O0 “...Gov, Ron DeSantis continues to show up at his worst. Blatant partisanship. Shameless corruption. Unacceptable incompetence. And stunning racism.”

8/ “Gainesville is really well-poised to lead here & I think it would be meaningful for other cities to join if Gainesville is leading,” said @ljgong, counsel at PRP & author of the guide we shared earlier in the thread.👏 #jointhefightagainstHB1 More: https://t.co/YzsbK1WT0p

6/ Together w/ the talented @cjpmiami + the City of #Gainesville, FL (cc @Gail4Gville) & support from amazing advocates at @LocalProgress + @GoDDsville_DD (cc @Dreamdefenders) & more—we are preparing a lawsuit against the state of #Florida and fighting the #racist #HB1 law.

4/ We’ve got more to share in the coming weeks on our fight against #HB1 in #Florida. This legislation not only discourages protests by ratcheting up the charges—any participant in a gathering that turns violent (through no fault of their own) is subject to a 3rd-degree felony…

3/ We will continue to work to ensure governments do their part in #policereform. We’ve laid out 5 ways State AGs can make a difference in #policeaccountability in this guide: https://t.co/SjDquB00bV https://t.co/3L4ePFijhq

2/ As #Juneteenth approaches tomorrow, we honor the Black community w/ our continued focus on protecting #civilrights & pushing for police reform & accountability. Here’s the deal—State AGs have the power & potential to help end police brutality... this is something they must do. https://t.co/Js83qQqhRt

5/ Care about #socialjustice? Support prosecutors that favor human lives over first-world conveniences. #Publicsafety includes being safe at work, at home, and as a consumer. Read more in our guide for local prosecutors to fight #corporateabuse: https://t.co/GQis0cJzsH

4/ It’s vital that local #prosecutors prosecute not just property, drug and violent offenses, but corporate misconduct that harms working people, tenants, and consumers. That’s equitable enforcement. And it builds a healthy — and just — ecosystem where no one is above the law.

5/ You know what Handy did when they got Pat’s message? Deducted $15 from her pay for leaving the harasser’s residence early. They never acknowledged her report and refused to reverse the fee. Just wow. @Handy needs to #cleanuptheiract. Read this too: https://t.co/bTjlKTyVEc

4/ Here’s 1 example: “I was so shocked,” said Pat in #SanJose who was greeted by a naked customer. “I left immediately because I was not comfortable entering the home. Right away, I sent a message to @Handy's customer service reporting the incident. I never received a response.”
