TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - On their 31st day at the state Capitol, the Dream Defenders announced Thursday they will be leaving to focus on the next step of their mission.
The group was joined on its final day at the Capitol by civil rights icon Julian Bond. The Dream Defenders touched on several victories they've had over the course of the month, including a meeting they've secured with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and other state agencies to address the "stand your ground" law, racial profiling and the school-to-prison pipeline.
"We're just getting begun," said Phillip Agnew, of the Dream Defenders. "We love everyone that supports us. We love folks that don't support us. They provide us with an alternative opinion. We'll be back."
The group said it'll be back in Tallahassee to meet with lawmakers at the end of September.
