Sample Letter to Your Florida Legislators

Before the legislative session is a good time to contact them to help them become aware and educate them about the issue.

If it is during the legislative session, be ready to respond quickly to “Calls to Action”.

Provide good information. Ask questions about their position on the issue, and answer their questions about your position.

Why We Need The Parents Bill of Rights in Florida

It is a fundamental right of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their minor children.

Parents come in all varieties. You do not have to be a lawyer to find out if your rights are being infringed upon.

Currently, Florida parental rights statutes are scattered throughout Florida law making identifying our parental rights in the statutes extremely complicated.

Parental Rights in Florida: A Parents Guide

What are your rights regarding Healthcare and Education for your child?

The interest of parents in the care, custody, and control of their children is recognized as a fundamental liberty protected by the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution.

We have compiled a list of “Parental Rights” to help you to understand what your rights are as a parent.

Calling Your Legislator

If the time is limited, then it’s time to take immediate action by calling your lawmakers! Your phone call could be the call that helps push forward our cause. 

Key things to remember when you call:

Be professional. Be respectful, factual and professional. Speak clearly to the Legislator and their staff.

Provide information. Identify yourself as a constituent (and voter).

Schedule A Meeting

An in-person visit will give you a chance to sit with your Legislator face to face.
Ask questions about your legislator’s stance toward the issue. Be ready for your legislator (or staff) to ask about your position.

Developing a relationship with staff is important.

Always say thank you. Follow-up by writing a thank you note to each staff member with whom you met. Thank your legislator for his or her consideration.
