Why is Grassroots Advocacy So Important?
Legislators listen to constituents, because they answer to them! This event will give you the opportunity to speak with lawmakers while they are making critical decisions about the state budget, long-term care, and senior housing. By telling them your story, you can personalize the issues and influence the outcome of pending legislation. Legislators need to hear from you so services and programs for senior Floridians are treated fairly. As a provider, your credibility makes you the perfect expert advocate for your community and the elders you serve. Your attendance is needed to make LeadingAge Florida’s unified voice heard loud and clear.
