Advocacy & Education Policy

We advocate for quality public education for all. Help us support our vision & mission by getting involved, join our active campaigns, and have your voice heard.

LCEA members are activists. They share their stories and they speak up.

During the 2022 Florida Legislative Session over 200 contacts were made by LCEA members to state lawmakers in the form of emails, calls, speeches during committees, and in person meetings.
