Dear Governor DeSantis,
On behalf of the 2.3 million members of AMAC – Association of Mature American Citizens, including nearly 180,000 residing in the state of Florida, I write to offer our support for the Stop the Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees (W.O.K.E.) Act.
The majority of AMAC members are deeply concerned about the long-term moral decay in American politics, culture, and society. The divisiveness of Marxist-based ideologies, such as Critical Race Theory, are at the forefront of our members’ concerns.
America holds the distinction of being the only country to ever overcome slavery and racism. Given this fact, it is hard to believe that we need legislation like Stop W.O.K.E. AMAC is grateful for your diligence in safeguarding Florida’s children and employees. Your bill would rightly withhold taxpayer funding from school districts, colleges and universities that promote the racism Critical Race Theory seeks to reestablish in our nation. Your proposal would also codify prohibitions already set forth by the Florida Department of Education.
Thank you, Governor DeSantis, for introducing legislation that works to stop state-sanctioned racism and for giving the Florida Department of Education, parents, and employees the tools to fight back. AMAC appreciates the efforts of you and your colleagues to protect the educational process and is pleased to offer our organization’s full support for the Stop W.O.K.E. Act.
President, AMAC Action
