Children’s Week Florida Advocacy Reception
Mon April 5 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
For more than 20 years, Children’s Week Florida Partners have hosted dozens of statewide association meetings in and around the Capitol on the week’s Monday kickoff. This special meeting day has concluded with the Advocacy Reception in which Children’s Week Florida Partners and other non-profit organizations gathered together for an evening to celebrate the Chiles Advocacy Award winner, dynamic speakers, live entertainment, and the opportunity to network with hundreds of child advocates, educators, policymakers, and business leaders from around the state.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an in-person event of this magnitude is not feasible. We plan to maintain this long-standing tradition this year, but with a new spin by hosting a virtual awards ceremony and program in which recipients of the 2021 Chiles Advocacy Award and new Youth Advocate Award will be honored. Virtual attendees will also have the opportunity to network with others, hear from inspirational speakers, and see a livestream of entertainment from talented youth and other individuals across the state. This special evening event is brought to you thanks to the support of this year’s Children’s Week Florida Reception and Awards Ceremony Partner, United Healthcare.
We hope you will join us for the livestreamed Advocacy Reception and other Children’s Week Florida virtual events (March 15 – April 12).
