What is the Democratic Caribbean Caucus?
The Democratic Caribbean Caucus of Florida is a Democratic political organization chartered by the Florida Democratic Party. We are a statewide organization chartered to organize the Democratic Caribbean Community and operate the Democratic Caribbean Caucus of Florida to address the issues the impact the Caribbean Community within the State of Florida. The Democratic Caribbean Caucus of Florida is a political voice for individuals of Caribbean background whose voices traditionally have been faintly or rarely heard in the political system. We derive our responsibility and authority from the State Democratic Party. The Democratic Caucus is granted an official seat on the Florida Democratic Executive Committee where political decisions are made for Democrats in the State of Florida. The Democratic Caribbean Caucus’ concerns and issues are now presented directly to the Florida Democratic Party at its Executive Meetings.
The Democratic Caribbean Caucus of Florida’s founders envisioned bringing the Caribbean Communities of Democrats throughout Florida to work politically side-by-side to increase our party’s voter base and election turnout.
