By Juan Penalosa, Field Director
I’m Juan Penalosa and I’m the Field Director at Florida Competes.
Every day, I have the pleasure of working with municipal leaders, small business owners and supporters like you to build support for the Competitive Workforce Act, which would protect LGBT Floridians from discrimination – I love my job!
Next Saturday, February 21, we’re hosting our first Statewide Day of Action, and we want you to be a part of it! Sign up here now, and someone from our staff will be in touch about how you can help in your community.
Knocking on doors, making phone calls, connecting with small businesses in your community – there are lots of way to help. No matter how you want to be involved, your support is essential to our success.
I’m already seeing incredible energy and hearing amazing stories from all across our state. From small business owners in Miami to grandmothers in Tallahassee, lots of people are energized about our work because they know that ALL Floridians deserve fair treatment at work and in their community.
I am very excited about the campaign we’re building together and I hope to meet you soon at a Florida Competes volunteer event.
