A court said that a part of Florida’s anti-“woke” law violates the free speech rights of employers. The law, known as the “Stop WOKE Act,” aims to prevent teachings suggesting privilege or oppression based on race, color, sex, or national origin. The court stated that the government can’t favor certain views without facing scrutiny under the First Amendment. Critics argue that the law limits speech and promotes certain viewpoints. The term “woke” is divisive, describing awareness for some and denouncing progressive action for others. Two employers challenged the law, wanting diversity training. The court agreed that banning speech on various political viewpoints is worse than addressing discrimination. Opponents are fighting the law’s impact on K-12 schools, higher education, and employers. Another court ruling temporarily blocked part of the law in public colleges and universities.
