This month, the Florida Legislative Black Caucus elected their 2022-2024 leadership team, led by Ocoee State Representative Kamia Brown as their new Chairwoman. This past term, she served as the Vice Chair of the Florida Legislative Black Caucus.
“I am honored to have been elected to serve as the Chair to the Florida Legislative Black Caucus. I look forward to the work that my colleagues and I will accomplish in our pursuit of uplifting and amplifying Black voices and issues during our time in leadership,” said Representative Brown.
The Florida Legislative Black Caucus is one of the state’s oldest minority political groups, dating back to 1964, but not formally launching until 1982 when 12 African Americans were elected to the Florida Legislature. There are currently five senators, who make up about 13% of the Florida Senate, and 20 House members, who make up about 17% of the Florida House of Representatives.
The elected leadership team is as follows:
- Representative Kamia Brown – Chair
- Senator Darryl Rouson – Vice Chair
- Representative Tracie Davis – Secretary
