Awake the State on March 8 - Tampa
Tuesday, March 8 · 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Lykes Gaslight Park

Draconian budget cuts proposed by Gov. Scott along with equally destructive proposals from the Florida Legislature has the potential to bring a wide range of constituencies – teachers, parents, police officers, firefighters, health care advocates, social workers, environmentalists – fighting under the progressive banner.
Budget cuts are something no Floridian can afford. We believe that Florida’s budget must be balanced responsibly through the elimination of unnecessary and unproductive sales tax exemptions and corporate income tax loopholes that cost Floridians more than $12 billion a year.
We ask that all Floridians who have a stake in this Governor's budget, those who stand to lose in favor of a corporation's gain, to stand united with us on March 8th. Supporters will be holding Awake the State rallies all over the state, including on the steps of the Capitol.
Alike our brothers and sisters in Wisconsin, our public sector employees are under attack. From the Department of Juvenile Justice and the Justice Administration are being defunded. Our environment has taken backseat to development. Our children in public schools will suffer with this governor's budget. We can't afford it. Stand United on March 8!
While not everyone will be able to travel to Tallahassee, Rick Scott will hear us from Tampa. This is not just a rally, this is a call to action! We will have ways for you to get involved and help save our state.
