FLOC is proud to join the Ohio Against Hate Campaign to encourage 100,000 Ohio voters to stand up and speak out against the hate-filled agenda of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. FLOC’s President Velasquez spoke at a press conference kicking off the campaign in Cleveland, OH yesterday. “Donald Trump is just vocalizing what we’ve heard under people’s breaths,” he said. “We continue to speak out against that and fight the inequities that propel the polarization and division that is based on greed and avarice.”
From Ohio Against Hate’s press release:
“The effort will be the largest summertime neighborhood-based, door-to-door campaign against hate and divisiveness in Ohio history, according to Ohio Against Hate Campaign Coordinator Jerry Pena. More information on the effort is at OhioAgainstHate.com.
On July 16, over the weekend before the Republican National Convention, more than 2,000 volunteers from Ohio will deliver a message of love and unity to multicultural communities across the state that have become the target of Trump’s hateful attacks. The door-to-door campaign will reach out to people in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dayton, Youngstown, Toledo, and Akron.”
