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 a series of online advocacy workshops, we will explore the fundamentals of general advocacy, including how to communicate effectively with public officials and legislators. During Children’s Week Florida 2021, we will further delve into targeted breakout sessions facilitated by top subject matter experts, exploring how we all can become advocates for children, youth, and families. These breakout workshops will cover a variety of topic areas including early childhood, child welfare, juvenile justice, healthcare, social justice, and much more. Stay tuned for more information and the training workshop schedule.
