Education. Transportation. Guns. Environment. Health Care.
Through the Florida Influencer Series, we’ve begun a conversation among leaders, decision makers, and voters to put a sharp focus on critical policy priorities.
Join us and help us build a better Florida. Together, we’ll share the policy lessons of the 2018 election and discuss real solutions to recommend to Florida’s newly elected officials. Through live interviews and coverage across our news and opinion platforms, we’ll push past ideas and advance the conversation with your active participation.
This will be an inclusive and civil, dynamic gathering that challenges political assumptions and creates a shared vision for Florida.
Your voice is important. We hope you will join us.
