WHEREAS the modern Pride celebrated worldwide in commemoration of LGBTQ+ rights was founded by trans women of color, drag queens, and queer folk resisting arrest at Stonewall Inn; and WHEREAS the county of Miami-Dade has a history of supporting the LGBTQ+ community and has ordinances that protect LGBTQ+ population, and for these reasons and more, Pride festivities held throughout the County of Miami-Dade or the State of Florida hold a special significance and are both attended and viewed by thousands worldwide; and WHEREAS the Democratic Party has a long history of supporting and uplifting the LGBTQ+ community, through resolutions, bills, engagement, and WHEREAS all segments of the LGBTQ+ community including those undocumented, incarcerated, impoverished, and otherwise marginalized by society deserve equal representation and respect within the movement for equality, but have not always found it; and THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Miami-Dade Democratic Party states that they support and will defend at all times, the rights, needs and contributions of the LGBTQ+ community, and will ensure to include LGBTQ+ rights onto their planks. BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Miami-Dade Democratic Party requests that that State of Florida Democratic Party also state that they support and will defend at all times, the rights, needs and contributions of the LGBTQ+ community, and will ensure to include LGBTQ+ rights onto their planks.

El Líder del Partido Demócrata de Miami-Dade hace un reclamo por el evento de recaudación de fondos para Donald Trump en la Ciudad de Doral
Los republicanos del estado de Florida se reúnen este miércoles en Doral para recaudar fondos en beneficio a la segunda campaña presidencial de Donald Trump. Los invitados especiales pagarán 250,000 dólares por asistir y conocer al presidente Trump. La ironía es que a pesar de la retórica anti-inmigrante, hacen el evento en Miami, condado donde más de la mitad de la población es inmigrante. Además, el hecho de que Trump estaría recibiendo fondos para su organización de parte de los invitados abre la pregunta sobre los ingresos y a quien le beneficia tal negocio. Lick here for the Story.
