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.
During the most recent legislative session (March 2021), we focused on school meals for children, healthcare, Medicaid expansion, affordable housing, civil citations, and issues of free speech. We also led a virtual training with state leaders during Children's Week 2021.
Our work always leaves us changed for the better, and has brought meaningful impact to Florida's most vulnerable communities, even though the pandemic.
