Some good news from Florida about Amendment 2 - but don't grab the champagne yet. This poll in the Sun-Sentinel was conducted before the big far-right church tour that begins today and before their deceptive barrage of robocalls, radio and television ads hit the airwaves. We have to keep our foot on the gas all the way across the finish line.

It is a strong indication that we can and will defeat this if good people here and across the country continue to donate time and money as we reach the final days.

Thanks Bill. We definitely need more funding. Those pushing this amendment are targeting Black churches in particular and we are committed to making sure their lies don't go unchallenged.
