Sept. 14, 2010 - PRLog -- The Children’s Movement of Florida is holding a rally, dubbed a “Milk Party”, at Seacrest School at 7100 Davis Boulevard Wednesday, September 22nd from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. With a focus on ensuring the “highest priority when it comes to receiving full and fair share of the state’s resources” for children, the Children’s Movement is fully supported by the Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida (ELC). Participants should plan to arrive by 6:00 p.m.

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 For additional details on the Children’s Movement or the rally, please visit
