Here in the Sunshine State, Environment Florida is working to ensure our state’s future is bright. 

On March 10, Environment Florida joined ReThink Energy Florida, Floridians Against Fracking and other environmental groups to host Reclaiming Florida’s Future For All — a citizen advocacy day. More than 200 people from across the state attended the virtual advocacy day, where they could listen to panels and lectures, lobby their decision-makers, and learn more about climate, clean energy and our environment.

“When it comes to the consequences of climate change, Florida’s on the front lines,” said Environment Florida State Director Jenna Stevens. “But if we give everyday Floridians the chance to talk with their legislators about critical issues such as protecting Florida’s clean water, supporting renewable energy, and banning fracking, we can help ensure a cleaner, greener future for our state.” 

Citizens participated in 70 meetings with decision-makers as they advocated for bold climate action.
