Representative Tracie Davis Condemns Bomb Threats at More than a Dozen HBCUs

Today, a growing number of historically black colleges and universities have had to lockdown or postpone classes due to bomb threats on the first day of Black History Month. “These threats of violence to historically black colleges and universities throughout the country, on the first day of Black History Month, tell me everything I need to know about the state of America. Even my alma mater, Edward Waters University, had to suspend all operations immediately. This is shameful. Between the HBCU bomb threats and the recent display of anti-Semitic hatred, what’s happening in Florida is troubling. Sadly, a lot of the policy priorities we’re seeing from Republicans this session will only add fuel to the fire. When they want to ban books and words, how can students learn and teachers teach without an honest and safe environment? For people that look like me, this isn’t a game. We are the ones hurt by another person’s mild discomfort or someone’s political posturing. These endless, politically motivated attacks need to stop and our leaders need to start putting the people first,” said Representative Tracie Davis (D- Jacksonville).

State Rep Tracie Davis Statement on Duval County School Board’s Leadership

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Florida State Representative Tracie Davis (D- Jacksonville) issued the following statement in response to Duval County School Board’s decision to defend school-aged children from the threat of COVID-19. “I am thankful to the school board for putting the safety of our kids first. It’s unfortunate that Governor DeSantis has chosen to stand in the way of local school leaders trying to follow the advice of experts like the American Academy of Pediatrics. Masks provide crucial protection to our children who are too young to receive the vaccine. Delta is different, and this variant has been far more dangerous to younger people, including kids. Right now, Duval County is at an extremely high risk for unvaccinated people. August has been the month with the highest average cases in Duval County.”
