By Charlotte Robinson, April 12, 2021

Equality Florida will honor Florida Human Relations Commissioner Monica Cepero with a Voice For Equality Award at its statewide virtual event on Sunday May 23rd from 1-2P ET via their Facebook, YouTube & Twitter channels. The Voice for Equality Award is bestowed annually upon a person who with courage, passion & unwavering commitment moves Florida’s LGBTQ community closer to full equality. Nadine Smith, Executive Director of Equality Florida stated, “Monica Cepero’s efforts on the Florida Commission for Human Relations led the agency to affirm that discrimination in employment, housing & public accommodations based on sexual orientation & gender identity is illegal. This means every LGBTQ Floridian, from the Panhandle to Key West, is protected from discrimination under the law. We’re so grateful for Monica’s tireless work to help move the needle closer toward justice & equality for all Floridians & we’re thrilled to recognize her as one of this year’s Voices for Equality.” Commissioner Cepero concluded, “In my nearly 30 years of public service, I can’t think of many more significant milestones that I have been honored to be a part of. Discrimination in any form is unacceptable & I’m proud to be a part of a Commission that values equal treatment & has the courage to do the right thing to protect the residents of the State of Florida. As a member of the LGBTQ community, I am grateful to Governor Ron DeSantis for appointing me to the Florida Commission on Human Relations. It is important that diverse voices are at the table when ensuring equality, fairness & equal opportunity for all.” For More Info…
