Find local decisionmakers, experts and advocates.
Ever find yourself reading an article outlining the missed opportunities and abuses in systems impacting kids and wish that you could just do something?
You can. We can help.
These resources have been developed with an eye on local advocacy. What can you do in your own community to effect change for your neighbors? It can be intimidating, but it can be done. Lasting change demands local ownership.
Together, we can improve outcomes for at-risk youth, reduce inequities and spread best practices across the state. So, let’s dig in.
Please note: As a local activist, you don’t represent the ACLU of Florida as an organization. You represent your own causes as a concerned community member. This is critical to local advocacy. As you work on your campaign(s), your voice will be stronger as representative of your community. If anyone is looking for comment about a formal ACLU of Florida position, please direct them to us.
