Mamas on a Mission is the Biggest Organization of Parents in Florida History
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida First Lady Casey DeSantis announced today the launch of Mamas for DeSantis. Through the First Lady’s leadership, Mamas for DeSantis will work to support Governor Ron DeSantis’s re-election campaign as a movement for Florida moms, grandmas, abuelas, nanas, and more to get involved in the re-election campaign. With the goal of signing up a million mamas across the state of Florida, this initiative will be the largest movement of parents in Florida history.
“Here in Florida, we have a true leader looking out for mamas, families, and our children: my husband, Governor Ron DeSantis. It is more important than ever for us to support him this November, and Mamas for DeSantis are fired up to do just that,” First Lady DeSantis said. “Florida mamas can count on Governor DeSantis to keep our families safe and our freedoms protected. We are a million mamas strong and we are on a mission to keep Florida free.”
“I am proud to have Casey by my side, and I am grateful for the example she sets for our three children. And now, I am excited to work alongside her as we launch the biggest parental rights movement in history,” Governor DeSantis said. “We are working every day to make Florida the most pro-parent state in the nation, and Mamas for DeSantis gives a voice to mothers across the state.”
Mamas for DeSantis will serve Florida parents who are on a mission to re-elect the Governor this November. The effort will directly engage with parents and families who want to make their voices heard. The campaign will feature the biggest organization of parents in state history – featuring paid media, direct mail, digital advertising, and events across this state.
The launch follows Governor DeSantis’s announcement of the DeSantis Education Agenda, a parent-centered agenda that calls on school board candidates to pledge their support to the Governor’s student-first leadership that has protected parental rights in education. Visit DeSantisEducationAgenda.
Governor Ron DeSantis continues to stand up for children and families ensuring Florida will be better off for a generation to come. Despite massive headwinds from Washington, D.C. and Democrat policies, Florida continues to be a leader in economic growth, excellent education, and quality of life.
