“The Florida Timeline is an ongoing initiative by the Florida Policy Institute and partners to “draw awareness to the systemic racism that has permeated historical laws in Florida and continues to reverberate in modern-day policy.”

She said policies discussed and passed in current times are part of a history of policy debate in our state.

“And we’re building on that history and we are a part of that legacy,” said Knight. “And we need to understand that in order to build a brighter future in which economic opportunity is accessible by everyone in Florida.”
