Support Herald Tribune Article Highlighting Racial Bias in Florida Courts System

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


The Sarasota Herald Tribune recently conducted an extensive study, the results of which suggest that Florida judges are culpable of racial biases against black people. This study was being used by Florida legislators to push forward legislation to hold Florida judges more accountable.


Unfortunately, a meritless study conducted by Professor Patrick McDonald of New College of Florida is being used to delegitimize the more extensive study conducted by the Herald Tribune. Professor McDonald has made minimal efforts to condemn his study and President O'Shea has done absolutely nothing. As members of the New College and Sarasota community we need to keep them accountable. Please sign this petition to say you condemn the New College study and support the one by the Herald Tribune.


We also encourage you to add a line, as we have plans for a longer press release and we want to make sure your voices are heard. If you would like to become involved, e-mail cristina.harty13@ncf.edu or marianny.deleon13@ncf.edu.


Thank you!
