"The white supremacists who organized the hateful demonstrations and violent protests in Charlottesville want to intimidate us--they will not. We will not fall silent, and we will not allow these acts of terror to subdue us. We are proud to be launching a statewide effort to expand the vote and counteract these acts of hate with hope. We are encouraging every Floridian to participate and #RallytoRegister on Saturday, August 19th. Take a stand--register to vote, join your local Democratic Party, and defend our democracy." said Florida Democratic Party Chair Stephen Bittel.
