2014 Florida Communist Party state convention

The Communist Party USA, Florida District, a party with a growing presence within the Sunshine State's progressive movement, held its convention in Orlando circa May 2014. This was the first such gathering in the state since 2006.

Patrick Foote, 24, has been a member of the CPUSA for a year, and says that one of the most important areas of struggle for him is advancing the right of workers to organize.

"I believe that capitalism, inevitably, is going to be the death of our species. Economic anarchy will only harm over time," he said, noting the effects of the profit system on the environment and indigenous peoples.

"Building socialism to me is building a plan to feed everyone, house everyone, clothe everyone, and have everyone have a voice" in how society is run, Foote said[5]
