Welcome to Florida SSN

About the chapter

The Florida SSN chapter launched in 2017 to build more connections between local scholars, civic leaders, policymakers, and journalists. Our members are particularly interested in immigration policy, environmental policy, health care, poverty, and current trends in race and ethnic inequality.
