Florida: My Story by Rebekah Jones
Rebekah Jones is a Florida scientist and whistleblower who became a national cause célèbre when she exposed the state of Florida for manipulating data during the COVID-19 crisis. Since her ousting by the Florida Governor, Jones has been recognized by professional, academic and medical leaders across the country for her efforts in combating misinformation online.
With a background in climate science, geography and disaster response, Jones' research and work centers on scientific research and communication about how climate change impacts extreme weather.
Jones fought against personal attacks and smear campaigns orchestrated by the Republican governor, and won international awards and recognition for refusing to be silenced - even after the governor sent state police to raid her family home at gunpoint. She is currently running for US House District 1 against Matt Gaetz.
