CONGRESSIONAL UPDATE from Rep. Darren Soto

Click here to read the latest news from our District 9 Congressman:

Read Rep. Soto's latest newsletter.

Dear friends and neighbors, 

Our nation is witnessing a historic level of despair and outrage in the wake of the brutal and inhumane death of George Floyd. As Americans take to the streets in protest, we, as a community, must hold ourselves accountable and bring equality and justice to communities of color everywhere.

As Americans and as human beings, it’s up to us to engage in conversations that help us better understand the plight of our African American brothers and sisters. It starts here, in the difficult conversations that bring forth the terrible truths interwoven in our cultural and social narratives, but it must end with change. 

Let us be the change.
In Community,
Darren Soto
