We’re bridging divides to ensure peace for all Floridians. Supported by The Carter Center, the Sunshine 100 welcomes leaders from across the political spectrum, from every corner of the state, and from every walk of life.

The Sunshine 100 is for dedicated leaders and community members who want to improve the quality of our democracy and who agree with our three principles.

What We Stand For

 

Voters and organizations can participate in the network, telling candidates to lead by example to help restore trust in elections. Network members will promote peaceful resolution of disputes and differences through constructive engagement, share proactive messaging that promotes accurate information about our elections, and counter acts of intimidation through dialogue, conflict-sensitive communication, and rapid response planning.

  1. Committing to truth in our politics
  2. Engaging peacefully with our fellow Americans
  3. Supporting our electoral democracy

Principles for Trusted Elections

Sunshine100 members will help mobilize support for the Principles for Trusted Elections. Launched in 2022, the nationwide, cross-partisan initiative asks citizens, organizations, and public officials to uphold five core principles of democratic elections. The Principles are:

  1. Integrity
  2. Nonviolence
  3. Security
  4. Oversight
  5. Peaceful transfer of power

As the 2024 Election approaches, our aim is to push back on partisanship by getting citizens in every state to support these principles. Leaders from across Arizona's political spectrum are collaborating with the Arizona DRN to support these principles.
