Joint Monthly meeting: Democratic Club of Sarasota and the Sarasota Democratic Black Caucus

Michele Rayner

On Saturday May 8 from 2-3:30, join Florida State Rep. MICHELE RAYNER (D-District 70) at a special legislative update, co-sponsored by the DEMOCRATIC CLUB OF SARASOTA and the SARASOTA DEMOCRATIC BLACK CAUCUS. Representative Michele Rayner will provide some insight into major legislation that was introduced during the Florida Congressional session: what passed or failed, what was sponsored by whom and her personal experience in Tallahassee since being elected in 2020.

 A civil rights attorney and social justice advocate, Rep. Rayner proudly campaigned and won as the first openly queer black woman elected to the Florida Legislature. She was the founder of the Civil Liberty Law, has served as a legislative assistant, has been a Democratic Party field organizer and director and was an assistant public defender in the state’s Sixth Judicial Circuit. She was also the local counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.  Rep. Rayner, a graduate of Florida Coastal School of Law and Florida State University, serves on the Health & Human Services Committee, on Subcommittees for Professions & Public Health, Justice Appropriations and Insurance and Banking,  as well as  a Joint Select Committee on Collective Bargaining.
