And it was no accident that the group was dancing outside Schumer’s office.
The U.S. Senator is no friend to “Stand Your Ground.” Last year, he wrote a letter to the Justice Department, asking for further examination of the law.
“We wanted to show Chuck Schumer that we applaud him and we’re extremely grateful that he would do something like that,” Anozier said. “We wanted to let him know that we support him in taking more of a leadership role toward that goal.”
The group has held steady to the boycotting of Florida but are going beyond not setting foot in the state.
“In every way,” Anozier insisted. “Whether it be oranges or orange juice or any company that supports Florida.”
According to DFA, boycotting Florida in your own way can only help the cause.
For those interested, the group regularly practices at The Mark Morris Dance Group company in Downtown Brooklyn. You can contact them at DancingforAction@gmail.com.
