All in to Win in 2020: The Winter Conference of the Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus, is in Orlando this weekend, March 6 through 8. Held in the middle of the I-4 corridor that decides statewide elections in Florida, the conference is one day before President Trump holds a high dollar fundraiser in the area and nine days before the Florida Presidential Preference Primary.
The Winter Conference brings together more than 150 LGBTQ+ activists and allies from around Florida; federal, state and local elected officials; Democratic Party officials; and subject matter experts to bring together the LGBTQ+ community and underscore the importance of winning in 2020.
Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo will speak at the opening breakfast to kick off the Conference program. Former actress, New York gubernatorial candidate, and Bernie Sanders surrogate Cynthia Nixon and Orlando City Commissioner Patty Sheehan will headline the lunch session.
State Representative Carlos Guillermo Smith and State Senator Annette Taddeo will provide a Tallahassee Legislative Update during the afternoon session. The caucus membership will conduct a Presidential Straw Poll so Floridians will know where the LGBTQ+ community stands.

Written on the right side of South Carolina’s state seal is a Latin phrase, “Dum spiro spero” — while I breathe, I hope.⠀ ⠀ South Carolina, your state opened its arms and embraced our family after our loss and helped us heal. @JoeBiden and I are looking forward to spending time back in the Palmetto State this month. ⠀ ⠀ You know better than anyone that Joe will not only heal our country, but also fight for our future. South Carolina, while I breathe, I hope — I hope for a brighter future for our country, a future where our nation is whole again, and a future with Joe Biden as our next president.
