LGBTQ Equality Florida Smith & Wolf

By Charlotte Robinson, August 30, 2021

Two Equality Florida staff members will serve on the United States Commission on Civil Rights’ Florida Advisory Committee for the next four years. The Commission announced the reappointment of Nadine Smith, Equality Florida Executive Director to her role as Chair of the committee & the appointment of Brandon Wolf, Equality Florida Media Relations Manager to the committee for the first time. The Florida Advisory Committee is one of 51 groups that advise the Commission on a range of issues impacting civil rights policy. Nadine Smith stated, “The work of safeguarding civil rights protections is critical to the future of democracy. It is an honor to be reappointed as Chair of this committee & to continue guiding these efforts over the next four years. The results of our in-depth investigation into voting rights exposed many areas that call out for leadership & action. We will continue sounding that alarm.” Brandon Wolf concluded, “It is an incredible honor to be called upon to serve the people of Florida in this capacity. Advancing civil rights protections for all Americans is a responsibility that falls on each of us. I look forward to giving voice to our community as we press forward on fulfilling the promise of our nation.” Established as an independent, bipartisan, fact-finding federal agency, the US Commission on Civil Rights’ mission is to inform the development of national civil rights policy & enhance enforcement of federal civil rights laws. They pursue this mission by studying alleged deprivations of voting rights & alleged discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, or national origin, or in the administration of justice.
