Gainesville is colloquially known as the Gator Nation, where residents say they bleed orange and blue. The city has also become the first community in Florida to roll out a plan that will make it a certified welcoming city to immigrants. This initiative follows other decisions like acceptance of community IDs as valid forms of identification. Changes like these make our community a place that receives and supports people who are asking for protection, rather than telling them to return to dangerous living conditions.
