Florida Advocacy Days

Florida Advocacy Days (FAD) 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.

We want to thank Saint Paul's UMC in Tallahassee for hosting our wonderful worship service.

We also want to thank those that walked to the Capitol on Tuesday and met with legislators.  What great advocates!

Bills we addressed:
  • Sadowski Trust Fund Bill
  • Florida for Fresh Access Requests
Here are some powerful and thought provoking direct quotes from our advocates:
  • 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
