Public Affairs and Advocacy Programs

Local News l

Currently, our Sarasota/Manatee Section has six core initiatives that are demonstrated in various ways: Human Trafficking, Teen Dating, Israeli Affairs, Lunch and Learn, a fall program that specifically focuses on one of our advocacy initiatives, Legislative Activities which includes two days in Tallahassee, a demonstration to promote change, and State Policy Advocacy. Some of these initiatives have significantly grown. Gun Safety is a project we would like to expand and there is an opportunity to make some changes with the Teen Dating Education initiative. There is always room for more but it will take volunteers to make it happen. We need your involvement, your ideas and your experiences. Please review all of our programs and come on board!
