Press Availability with Representatives Carlos Guillermo Smith & Anna V. Eskamani Focused On Vouchers
The Two Lawmakers Have Been Championing Accountability of Florida’s Anti-LGBTQ Voucher System
Tallahassee, FL — Last night Wells Fargo became the third company and second major bank to announce that they will no longer be donating millions to Florida’s anti-LGBTQ voucher educational system.
The announcement made national news, with Wells Fargo stating, “We have reviewed this matter carefully and have decided to no longer support Step Up for Students. All of us at Wells Fargo highly value diversity and inclusion, and we oppose discrimination of any kind.”
Representatives Carlos Guillermo Smith and Anna V. Eskamani have been leading the charge in calling out Florida’s anti-LGBTQ voucher system, with Representative Eskamani filing legislation that would prohibit such schools from being funded in the first place. Both will be available today at the House Democratic Caucus Briefing Room to thank the companies that have ended their funding, and to speak towards the next steps in protecting and supporting Florida’s kids.
