Equality Florida and the Coalition for Fair Adoption are working hard with our allies in Tallahassee -- Senator Nan Rich and Representative Sheri McInvale -- to roll back Florida's infamously anti-family, anti-gay adoption ban.
Democrats and Republicans alike believe this discriminatory ban should be repealed. They need to know that we'll be there to back them up when they do the right thing.
The Senate Committee on Children and Families is preparing to hear Senator Nan Rich's bill (SB-172) that would allow gay and lesbian prospective parents to adopt in certain circumstances.
The two things you can do right now:
- Write to the Committee on Children and Families and tell them to support SB-172. It will just take a few minutes of your time and we will provide you with a pre-written email you can edit or just send as-is. Click here to send your email now:
