Florida Refuse To Return To School

We are educators, administrators, school support staff, students, parents, guardians, and concerned individuals. We refuse to return to campus this fall until our counties report no new cases of COVID-19 for at least 14 consecutive days. Let it be known that this is not simply a petition, but a statement of intent, a pledge not to return until it is safe.

Ybor City - Immigrants Town

Ybor City was founded in the 1880s by 
Vicente Martinez-Ybor and other cigar manufacturers and was populated by thousands of immigrants, mainly from Cuba, Spain, and Italy.
 For the next 50 years, workers in Ybor City's cigar factories rolled hundreds of millions 
of cigars annually.
Ybor City was unique in the American South as a successful town almost entirely populated 
and owned by immigrants.

Tampa’s Castor: A Distrusted, Unrepentant Racist

Her actions as Tampa’s police chief from 2009-2015 undermined race relations and her inaction to repair them as mayor during her turbulent 14-month tenure lend validity to that perception. Jane Castor wears the title of Tampa mayor but a more accurate representation to the city’s majority of African Americans would be Racist-in-Chief.
"Racial profiling, violation of civil rights, and direct violence are all behaviors and policies that Jane Castor failed to address as Chief of Police. Utilizing tear gas and pepper spray against demonstrators, arresting journalists, and condoning police corruption are all crimes that in any other place would be considered war crimes and crimes against humanity. The recent calls for Chief Dugan to resign were met by the Mayor with a clear statement 
of solidarity.” Chris Cano

The Restorative Justice Coalition is demanding that Castor answer for the 2014 death of Arthur Green Jr., a 63-year-old black elder who had a diabetic emergency.  Tampa Police Department responded by placing him in a similar position as George Floyd, which led 
to his death.

Florida's Right Wing Infestation: KW Miller

KW Miller is running for a seat in the 18th Congressional District in Florida. In a series of bizarre tweets posted over the weekend, Miller said that Beyonce wasn’t "even" Black and much more.

On Saturday night, he sent the first tweet linking Beyoncé to QAnon, a far-right conspiracy theory that claims the "deep state" is conspiring against Trump, saying that she was part of the “Soros
 Deep State agenda”. HERE

Hot Jacksonville, Florida

FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn, who was appointed to the post by Trump, said it’s “too early to tell” if Jacksonville will be safe to hold the convention on the planned Aug. 24-27 dates. 
Jacksonville is now one of the hotspots for coronavirus transmission in the U.S.

Samuel L. Davis was a native New Yorker who learned the cigar trade at a young age in his hometown. After being a salesman for Julius Ellinger Co., he founded the Samuel L. Davis Co. in 1886 at the age of 24 to produce El Sidelo, Gen. Good, Charle Carroll, Segundo and Harvester brands.
Samuel L. Davis first occupied the old Joyce Cigar Co. factory building between Ybor City and Tampa before constructing a new facility
