|Today, Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison traveled to Florida to host a listening session with LGBTQ and youth leaders in Orlando. Chair Harrison was joined by partners from Equality Florida, the Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus, and local youth activists to discuss recent anti-LGBTQ legislation being pushed by Governor Ron DeSantis.

|Building on the DNC’s 57-state-and-territory strategy, these events are the latest in Chair Harrison’s community engagements across the South this week, which includes stops in Little Rock, Arkansas; Orlando and Miami, Florida; and Robeson County, North Carolina with rural, LGBTQ, youth, Latino, Black, AAPI, and Native community members.
This community outreach comes as the DNC has committed more resources earlier than ever in a robust 57-state-and-territory strategy to invest in strong long-term party infrastructure. So far this cycle, the DNC has made almost $50 million in commitments and contributions to states for party-building and electoral programs. As part of this investment, the DNC and state parties last year announced a historic agreement to increase the DNC’s monthly State Party Partnership (SPP) funding by 25% and create a first-of-its-kind Red State Fund to invest in Democratic state parties’ efforts to sustain long-term programs in traditionally Republican states.
