Boycott Florida Tourism

We're boycotting Florida tourism until the "stand your ground" law is overturned. Your state is not a safe place to vacation if your citizens are able to kill anyone they deem suspicious.

Why is this important?

The original petition to boycott Florida tourism was posted more than a year ago, when there was intense debate going on about Stand Your Ground, because George Zimmerman had not been arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. That trial has ended, and no petition in the world will bring Trayvon back to his grieving parents. This petition is about repealing Stand Your Ground in Florida (and in turn all other states that have it) because the law is flawed and dangerous.

Reasons for signing

  • I’m a Florida native. I’m signing this based on the tragic death of the young man in Clearwater. The fact that it took them 3 weeks and they set this trial so far out is ridiculous. They letting this man live out his freedom while another had to leave his family. It’s disgusting how Florida protects the rights of gun carriers to use UNNECESSARY force, while something that kids in elementary school do (a push) is not seen as standing your ground. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.tampabay.com/n...
  • Thank you for convincing my husband to travel outside of the continental US...We used to travel to Pensacola at least twice a year....Hello Bahamas!!!
  • Will never give my hard earned money to a racist ass state, especially when they elected one as governor.
