2020 Legislative Session | Week 3
The 3 rd week of Legislative Session was bustling during the 25 th Annual Children’s Week at the Capitol! Children and advocates from all over the state of Florida visited the Capitol to highlight the importance of children’s issues to our legislators.

On Monday night, at the annual Children’s Week Awards Dinner & reception, honored 4Generations Institute founder Jack Levine with the Chiles Advocacy Award. Jack served for 25 years as the President of Voices for Florida’s Children, and he continues to advocate for children across the state of Florida. We thank Jack for his unrelenting dedication to children’s health, education and overall well-being.

They had a chance to meet with legislators, policymakers and advocates on current issues, tour Florida State University (FSU) and Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) and network with other youth advocates from across the state.
