Florida NAACP, Gov. Ron DeSantis clash over proposed travel advisory

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is clashing with the state’s chapter of the NAACP over the civil rights group’s suggestion that a travel advisory should be issued for the state because of how the governor’s policies are impacting people of color.

Members of the NAACP Florida chapter gathered in Orlando Saturday and unanimously voted to ask the group’s national board to issue the travel advisory, according to the Tampa Bay Times and WFTS-TV. One such advisory was issued for Missouri in 2017 due to policies the NAACP deemed discriminatory.

“We’re just not going to take it anymore, we’ve been taking it long enough,” said Isaiah Rumlin, president of the NAACP’s branch in Jacksonville, which is supporting the push for a travel advisory.
