QLatinx is joining the in the call for the immediate resignation of Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg for his xenophobia comments.
On Saturday, August 18, Seminole County Tax Collector, Joel Greenberg publicly shared Islamophobic content to his social media page: “Name just ONE society in the developed world that has benefited in ANY WAY from the introduction of more Muslims. Just one. Asking for a friend." Greenberg further included in the comments a link by an anti-Muslim site. Sadly, this is not the first time, elected official Joel Greenberg has taken this xenophobia to his Facebook page- he has historically posted Islamophobic commentary.
After several attempts encouraging Greenberg to apologize, and multiple invitations to engage in open dialogue with Muslim leadership and his Muslim constituents- several advocacy groups are calling on Attorney General Pam Bondi and Executive Director of FL Department of Revenue, Leon Biegalski to urge the immediate resignation of Seminole County Tax Collector, Joel Greenberg. Additionally, advocates are calling on Greenberg's family business, Greenberg Dental & Orthodontics, to condemn the statement(s).
Join us in our call for justice, and in demanding for the resignation of Joel Greenberg for his hateful and xenophobic fueled remarks.
Sign and share this petition condemning his hate speech and urge the Attorney General and FL Department to Revenue to call for his resignation.
