Environmental Voter Resolution

Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida (DECF)

Environmental Voter Resolution

Whereas the Florida Democratic Party and its members are dedicated to electing more candidates to all offices at every electoral level, and to increasing the number of Democratic voters in the state; and

Whereas, 81 % of Floridians think that climate change is occurring, and that Florida is the most vulnerable of all states to sea level rise from climate change; and

Whereas the majority of Florida voters have consistently supported proenvironmental issues in recent years, including passage by 75% of a 2014 constitutional amendment to protect and preserve the state’s water and land, and twice voting decisively to protect access to solar energy; and

Whereas, Florida business and tourism is compatible and synergistic with preservation of the environment; and

Whereas, the continued success of Florida business is directly connected to preservation of the environment;

Therefore, be it resolved that the Florida Democratic Party will integrate environmental values into communications strategies, messaging and support for Democratic candidates at all electoral levels; and

Be it further resolved that the Florida Democratic Party will develop and implement strategies to better engage all environmental voters.
