MEDIA ADVISORY: FreedomWorks’ BEST Hosts Days of Action at the Florida State Capitol, Jan 25-26 2022
WASHINGTON, D.C. — In celebration of National School Choice Week, FreedomWorks’ BEST will be bringing parent activists from across the state of Florida to Tallahassee to lobby and rally in support of legislation that expands educational freedom for parents and students. BEST will bus parent activists from southern Florida to the State Capitol, making several pickup stops along the way, to meet with legislators and engage in education committee meetings in the House and Senate. BEST will host a press conference and attend a rally with leading education freedom groups to cap off the days’ lobbying efforts.
“2021 was a year of tremendous success for parent activists and education freedom. We have a lot to celebrate,” commented Director of Education Reform Laura Zorc. “But if we want to make a lasting impact for our children and make educational freedom a reality for all students, not just a few, parents must take the fight to our state legislatures. We are starting in the Sunshine State to emphasize that even in a state as freedom-friendly as Florida, there is still work to be done.”

Tuesday, Jan 25: Reception and Press Conference from 12 PM – 1 PM (22nd floor of the Capitol, located at 400 S Monroe St, Tallahassee, FL 32399)
