IV. What is Anti-Wokeness/Anti-Woke Legislation?
"House Bill 999 (Postsecondary Educational Institutions), which was approved in a 12-5 party-line vote on March 13, follows a movement in the state led by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis to limit discussions on race, gender identity and sexuality in schools. It is the latest installment in a series of similar bills that have been enacted in Florida. Last year, the governor signed into law the “Stop WOKE” Act (which is currently pending appeal), which seeks to restrict how conversations about race and gender take place at colleges and in workplaces by barring any discussion that would make people feel “guilty” or “uncomfortable” about past wrongs."
