It’s been 10 years since The Children’s Movement of Florida began with a “Milk Party” tour engaging more than 15,000 Floridians all across the state. It’s time to convene parents, teachers, business leaders, politicians, and state leaders to again focus on children’s well-being.
These pandemic times have highlighted the link between positive relationships starting in infancy, high-quality early education, access to preventive health care, and financial stability for families–all critical to ensure a strong start for Florida children. And research has proven that we can expect an incredible return from investing in children and building community resilience.
Join us for a virtual summit to hear from national experts and local change makers, bridging the worlds of politics, business, and early childhood. We want strong communities and stronger families, and we want you to be part of this movement. Let’s build momentum for 2021!
