Tell Your Legislators: I Support The Children’s Movement 2017 Agenda

Two weeks ago, we proudly shared The Children’s Movement’s priority agenda for 2017. Achieving real progress toward those goals will help tens of thousands of Florida's youngest children be ready to succeed in school and in life.

The Florida legislative session, which begins Tuesday, is a crucial time when our elected officials decide which important programs to fund for the next year. We need your support on a petition urging them to include Movement priorities in the state budget.

By filling out your information, we can determine who is your state senator and representative. We will deliver your petition to their offices in Tallahassee during the session. Thank you for your support for The Movement and Florida’s youngest children.

2017 Movement Petition

As a concerned citizen of Florida, I believe increasing state investment in our youngest children is vital so they can achieve their fullest potential. That is why I fully support the 2017 Children’s Movement of Florida Agenda, including:

  • Linking early-learning funding to quality standards and increasing access to high-quality programs.
  • Continuing to fund the Help Me Grow parent support system, now available in 27 Florida counties. This 24/7 program, accessible in several languages by phone, web and mobile, focuses on providing parents with the most up-to-date information about their children’s development.
  • Support for legislation to ensure more children can access health insurance in Florida.

Thank you for your consideration to support The Movement's priorities this year. As we all know, these children are the future of Florida.
