Children's Cabinet - February 24, 2017
A roomful of 37 child advocates attended an Orange County Children’s Cabinet meeting to learn more about expanding the Florida KidCare health-insurance program, one of The Movement’s 2017 priorities. Afterward, many registered for follow-up activities to help increase enrollment in the program.
Linda Sutherland, executive director of Healthy Start Coalition of Orange County and chair of the Children’s Cabinet’s Advocacy Committee, urged representatives of the children’s organizations present to collect the stories of the individuals they serve to best advocate for children in areas which include but extend beyond even health and early education.
“People think their voice does not matter,” said Sutherland. “But each voice counts.”
