1,300 Businesses Across Florida Declare They Are “Open to All”
Today businesses across Florida, members of Open Doors announced that they are joining the national Open to All® coalition. Open to All® unites and galvanizes national leaders in business, civic engagement, and the nonprofit sector to take a stand for the shared American values of fairness and equality—and supports the bedrock principle that when businesses open their doors to the public, they should be Open to All®. This partnership brings national visibility to Florida’s businesses and strengthens efforts in the state to support diversity and inclusion.
As a nation, we decided long ago that when a business opens its doors to the public, it should be open to everyone on the same terms. But shockingly, many Americans still can’t be sure they will be treated equally when they seek goods or services from businesses in their local communities.
No one should have to worry about whether they will be denied service or face hostility as they go about their daily lives. Yet far too often, we hear stories of discrimination, such as people of color facing abuse and violence in a diner, a gay couple being kicked out of an Uber, Muslim women ordered to leave a café, or people with disabilities being harassed in a restaurant.
That’s why leading businesses, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP-LDF and others across the country are joining together to oppose discrimination and declare that they are Open to All®. Join the nearly 4,000 members of the Open to All® coalition and make your voice heard. Because no one should be turned away from a business simply because of who they are.
