LGBTQ and immigration groups issue a Florida travel advisory
An LGBTQ advocacy group has issued a travel advisory warning people from coming to the state for business, pleasure or relocation.
Equality Florida issued the travel advisory after the passage of what it considers anti-LGBTQ and anti-trans laws, permitless carry, and a possible six-week ban on abortion.
The advocacy group is warning individuals, families and entrepreneurs that Florida may not, “be a safe place to visit or take up residence.”
The group says it will continue to provide information to people who decide to stay in the state, including a list of businesses with nondiscriminatory policies and procedures.
The advisory comes the same day the Florida Immigrant Coalition issued a travel advisory warning people against coming to Florida.
In March, the NAACP issued its travel advisory warning Black people against coming to the state.
