Children’s Movement of Florida Brings “Milk Party/Rally” to Lee and Collier Counties
Two local organizations partner together to host rally to raise awareness on issues regarding children and education.
The Children’s Movement of Florida is a citizen-led, non-partisan movement to educate political, business and civic leaders – and all parents of the state – about the urgent need to make the well-being and education of our infants, toddlers and all other children Florida's highest priority. The Children’s Movement of Florida believes that the economic future of our state and the stability of the communities we live in depend on achieving this goal.
“It’s critical that the parents, guardians, child care providers and community members participate in this event, making a visible impact of the importance of children’s issues,” commented Kathleen Reynolds, Ph.D., CEO of ELC. “Our children are our future and the economic viability of Florida’s next economy depends on them. It’s our job to make all parties aware of this.”
Children’s Movement will be supplying buses to shuttle attendees back and forth from the rally. Arranged locations for pick up and drop off can be obtained by contacting Becky Newell at becky.newell@
The Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida exists to enhance the quality of children's lives by providing families, early childhood educators, caregivers and community partners in Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee Counties, with opportunities to positively impact the future.
