Standing with DeSantis

The Stop W.O.K.E. Act has been signed into law.

by Christopher F. Rufo

Last December, I traveled to Florida to help introduce the Stop W.O.K.E. Act with Governor Ron DeSantis. Yesterday, I traveled back to the Sunshine State to celebrate the signing of that historic legislation, which bans schools, corporations, and government agencies from promoting race essentialism, collective guilt, and racialist abuse.

During the event in Hialeah, I delivered a speech outlining the threat of critical race theory in education and business, explaining to the predominantly Cuban audience that replacing “equality” with “equity” will lead to disaster, as many of their families had experienced in communist Latin America. Governor DeSantis praised my work, telling the audience that nobody has done more to “raise the alarm,” “educate people,” and “ make an impact” on public policy.

The Stop W.O.K.E. Act is a huge step forward in our campaign to defeat critical race theory. Governor DeSantis has proven himself to be the most effective political leader in the country and I was proud to stand beside him during yesterday’s historic events.
