Recess at the Women's March
Kids were the inspiration for Recess for All Florida Students, but they were also our allies. We had kids speak at board meetings, address the House in committee meetings, meet with legislators, attend Recess Rallies, interview with reporters and much, much more.
Involve your kids and teach them about advocacy and government. How does a bill become a law? Here is a great handbook for kids that explains the process. Introduce them to Kid President and his love of politics. . And who could forget the Schoolhouse Rock song “I’m Just a Bill?”
Have your kids contact those who represent them. We delivered letters from kids in our districts to our school board members locally and to our legislators in Tallahassee! Here is a template to give to your kids to get them started.
