League of Women Voters of Florida

The League of Women Voters of Orange County, Florida held a luncheon last week focusing on the painful history of the Ocoee Massacre. On Nov. 2 1920, an armed white mob chased black businessman and voting rights advocate July Perry from his home, burned black-owned homes & businesses to the ground, killed upwards of 60-70 black residents and drove the approximately 500 black residents out of town, resulting in the city becoming all-white for more than 50 years. All because black Americans wanted to vote.

By the time the sun rose Nov. 3, Perry was dead — lynched on a lightpost in Orlando. Primary part of the story starts 6:30 minutes in.

Statement from League of Women Voters of the U.S. on President Trump's emergency declaration this morning:

By declaring a state of emergency, the president abuses his national emergency powers and undermines Congressional authority—all for a wasteful, ineffectual border wall that will not make our nation safer.

The American people expect the president to fulfill his executive responsibility for sound management of public funds, not sidestep Congress in order to force funding for a border wall that the American people have not sanctioned.

The League objects to this abusive declaration of a national emergency.This declaration is an abuse of national emergency powers. http://bit.ly/2Bz2wH6

How the hell does he think it's ok to declare an emergency and head to Florida to spend the weekend golfing at his Maralagoon resort?!?! Ugh...
