According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, to advocate is to support or argue for someone or something, including causes and policies. The foundations of Children’s Week Florida is deeply rooted in advocacy for young children. Over the years, this advocacy component has remained and the Children’s Week Florida team is excited to continue its advocacy reach to other important and pressing issues affecting all of Florida’s citizens.
In January and February, Children’s Week Florida hosted the Avenues to Advocacy series, a collection of interactive virtual advocacy workshops, facilitated by respected subject matter experts. These workshops covered a variety of topics including education, health access, and racial equity. Throughout the series, guest panelists explored the fundamentals of advocacy, how to communicate effectively with public officials and legislators, and ultimately help attendees navigate the process of becoming an influential advocate for the causes most important to them. The full-recorded workshops are listed and featured below.We hope you will join us for upcoming advocacy workshops and other Children’s Week Florida virtual events (March 15 – April 12).
