2019 Legislative Session | Week 4
The "Hanging of the Hands" in the Capitol Rotunda on Sunday, March 24th signaled the official start of the 2019 Children's Week. The hands serve as a visual representation of the vast number of children that legislators and other decision makers affect. Monday's Awards Dinner was full of inspirational speakers and special guests including First Lady Casey DeSantis. DeSantis and others thanked the room of advocates for their tireless work on behalf of children across the state and underscored the importance of supporting Florida's most valuable asset, our children. The Capitol was bustling all week with children and youth leadership groups who had the opportunity to meet with legislators and see our legislative process in action. Congratulations to the United Way of Florida and everyone who played a role in putting on yet another successful Children's Week!
