JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The NAACP on Saturday issued a formal travel advisory for Florida saying the state is openly hostile toward African Americans, people of color and LGBTQ+ individuals.
The group said the advisory comes in direct response to Gov. Ron DeSantis and recent legislation passed by Republican lawmakers.
The new laws caused at least one group to cancel a Pride event scheduled for next month in St. Cloud, Fla.
