Rally in Tally

The Florida Coalition for Children’s 2019 Rally in Tally will be returning to Tallahassee, Florida on Monday, February 4 – Tuesday, February 5, 2019!  

Rally in Tally is dedicated to educating our foster youth, families, and child welfare workers on advocating for their needs with Florida’s lawmakers.

We want to offer our advocates, especially our youth, the opportunity to meet one-on-one with legislators and share their stories and experiences. As part of the child welfare system, they bring awareness to the issues facing the system each day across the state.
