Florida Politics: Equality Florida Action PAC backs Daniella Levine Cava for re-election as Miami-Dade Mayor

Just as it did during her inaugural run at the county’s top office in 2020, pro-LGBTQ group Equality Florida Action PAC is again endorsing Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, this time for re-election.

The organization’s Chair, Stratton Pollitzer, called Levine Cava “an outspoken advocate for the LGBTQ community — standing as our proud ally in the face of growing hostility in Florida.”

“Equality Florida Action PAC is proud to endorse Mayor Daniella Levine Cava for re-election,” he said in a statement.

“In times like these the LGBTQ community must and will work as hard for Mayor Daniella as she has worked for all of us every day. We are all-in for her reelection and consider it a top priority for Florida’s LGBTQ community.”

Levine Cava has indeed been a vocal supporter of LGBTQ rights and equality. As a Miami-Dade Commissioner, she was the first person elected to the dais to file expressly LGBTQ-focused measures, a resolution urging the federal government to condemn the Cuban regime for actions against LGBTQ people.

She also successfully backed another measure recognizing every June as LGBTQ Pride Month in the county and was among eight Commissioners in 2014 to approve an ordinance banning discrimination based on gender identity.
