A.d.l. Maps Fight on Resort Discrimination in Florida

Download PDF for this date

Measures to combat resort discrimination in Florida were adopted here at the annual Florida State Anti-Defamation League Conference.

The parley decided on a study of the charters and ordinances of various Florida municipalities in connection with possible adoption of anti-discriminatory advertising and sign ordinances. It also decided on an “educational program” in the various communities on the problem of resort discrimination and to make representations to discriminatory establishments as part of this program.

The conference also called for a statewide campaign for removal of discriminatory barriers in civic club organizations. This followed a report analyzing discrimination against Jews in civic clubs in this state. The conference also decided to set up a committee to organize a citizens movement in Florida for revision of U.S. immigration policy.
