Florida Advocacy Days

Florida Advocacy Days is a vital partnership between the 11th Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church, and Florida Impact to End Hunger. We work year-round to lift the voices of children and families in the legislative process with focus on food insecurity, nutritional need and access to housing. We also advocate on issues that directly affect peoples' ability to participate in the political process.

On 2/1/2022, during Children's Week, we held a Morning of Inspiration and Action event.  Click the link to the left "FAD in action" to learn all about it.
 HB6079 / SB762 We ask you to review these bills, listen to the above referenced event and take action!  

Here are some powerful and thought provoking direct quotes from our attendees:

  • Once we become aware, we become responsible
  • Food should never be a punishment
  • Make advocating personal
  • Remember to “name drop” we are a part of a very large coalition
  • This work cannot stop as long as one child is forced to play or go to bed  hungry
  • It is a marathon not a sprint.  Never stop advocating.
  • Talk about being in partnership with those in power on works of God

 

 

As always, if you have been in contact with your legislator, have a success story or have an advocacy God siting, email us at ConMin@flumc.org and let us know!
