MIAMI, Fla. — Going forward, Nov. 7 every year will be known as Victims of Communism Day in the state of Florida.
Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation establishing the day during a news conference at the Freedom Tower in Miami on Monday.
DeSantis said the legislation requires the state’s public schools to observe the day and educate students on “the evils of communism.”
During the news conference, DeSantis also approved $25 million to support repairs and renovations to the Freedom Tower and the renaming of three roads for Cubans who fought against Fidel Castro in Cuba.
