Democratic Black Caucus Of Florida
Forty years ago, over forty Black delegates from around the State of Florida, attending the 1981 Florida State Democratic Party Convention in Hollywood, Florida were alerted to the need for increasing the power and influence of Black Democrats within the party. A decision was made at that Convention to unite Black Democrats throughout the State. The decision resulted in the organization of the Democratic Black Caucus of Florida, which was officially recognized on September 24, 1983, by the Florida Democratic Party Florida as an official affiliate organization.
The Democratic Black Caucus of Florida believes that the future of our Caucus depends upon building political entitlements, making social adjustments, enforcing educational advancements, and demanding equitable business transactions. The Caucus is an integral part of the Florida Democratic Party’s infrastructure, which unites talent with opportunity to facilitate voter turnout and identify qualified Black Democrats to run for office. The DBCF will continue in building through educational forums effecting Voter Registration Drives (EVRD), Get Out The Vote (GOTV), Voter Action Network (VAN), Vote By Mail (VBM).
In a continued effort the Democratic Black Caucus of Florida will work with leaders from around the State of Florida in its effort to establish County chapters in all 67 Florida counties. We will build up and reinforce the Florida Democratic Party by working diametrically with local and state Democratic leaders, Democratic Executive Committees, and local Democratic elected officials. We will encourage, engage, and educate to empower Black Democrats in the State of Florida. But, as the DBCF we will also support our constituency to become the next generation of leaders in the Florida Democratic Party and the national Democratic Committee, respectfully.
