February marks Black History Month

We're so looking forward to all the great events celebrating black history and
African American artists, leaders, thinkers and inventors past and present.


Read a message from Congresswoman Val Demings (D-FL)
about what Black History Month means to her by clicking here.

Black History Month is a time to celebrate black excellence and acknowledge how it is often ignored or even shunned by popular media and whitewashed interpretations of history. It’s also a time for us to imagine the future generations of African American leaders yet to come and to make sure every African American has a voice in our Democracy.

To celebrate, we want to launch a crowdsourced effort to register the 330,986 unregistered African American voters in Florida. $1 = 1 voter registration form in the mail.

We have identified 330,986 African Americans who are eligible to vote but have not yet registered.
Donate $20 to send 20 unregistered voters a registration form right now!
- Thanks! Team FDP
