The Sarasota-Charlotte Progressive Caucus is actively involved in:
Protecting Public Education
We support our teachers and focus on the real issues in Sarasota schools:
• Declining Florida State revenue for schools
• Increasing number of vouchers to private schools
• Stagnating achievement gap, particularly affecting children of color
• Addressing COVID trauma and other social-emotional issues
The Green Transition
What would it mean for the Suncoast region if billions of dollars were made available through the American Jobs Plan for climate-related infrastructure projects? A mass mobilization to meet the challenge of climate change, and the investment that comes with it, creates opportunity, jobs and thriving economies.
Lifting the U.S. embargo against Cuba
The embargo against Cuba, initially instituted some sixty years ago, is one of the greatest failures of American foreign policy in modern history. The embargo deprives the Cuban people of resources, contributing to deteriorating infrastructure and poor access to food and basic needs. Simply put, it starves the island. This is injustice, this is cruelty, and we refuse to let it be done in our name.
