Lobby Days 2016 A Great Success
The 2016 FAWL Lobby Days, our annual effort to further causes and legislation important to our members, were an overwhelming success. While meeting January 10-12, we had more than 70 people representing 25 chapters attend in Tallahassee.
FAWL members had the opportunity to watch opening sessions of both the House and Senate, and then meet personally with Rep. Lori Berman (D – Palm Beach), Chair of the Women’s Legislative Caucus, and Rep. Ross Spano (R – Hillsborough), Vice Chair of the Justice Appropriations Subcommittee, both of whom are supporting the anti-human-trafficking bills (HB 469 CS/SB784) that is part of FAWL's legislative efforts.
During a special tour of the Florida Supreme Court, members had the honor to meet with Chief Justice Jorge Labarga, Justice Barbara Pariente and Justice Charles Canady. In an extended meeting, Justice Peggy Quince took the time to share personal experiences from her 20-plus years as a jurist.
Our annual legislative reception was attended by more than a dozen legislators and legislative staff, where FAWL members had a chance to meet and greet in a more relaxed setting. In addition to Representatives Spano and Berman, legislators who attended included
Legislative aides to Rep. Reggie Fullwood (D – Duval) and Rep. Edwin Narain (D – Hillsborough) also stopped by the reception to network with FAWL members.
"The FAWL Legislative Committee, led by Kyleen Hinkle and Emily Criste, did an outstanding job planning and implementing this event. Their tireless efforts led to record-setting attendance and great results," said FAWL President Kristin Norse.
