Advocacy

An idea is like a play. It needs a good producer and a good promoter even if it is a masterpiece. Otherwise the play may never open; or it may open but, for a lack of an audience, close after a week. Similarly, an idea will not move from the fringes to the mainstream simply because it is good; it must be skillfully marketed before it will actually shift people’s perceptions and behavior.

How to Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas

The success of Healthy Start is dependent on its many volunteers, team members and, most importantly, advocates for the services provided to the pregnant women, fathers and family members who want their baby to have a Healthy Start in life! Advocates are a loud voice to those who need to clearly hear the positive work being done by the Healthy Start Coalition of Miami-Dade. 

 
Please let us know if you have an encounter with a media representative or policy maker so we can provide appropriate follow-up as needed. Your willingness to advocate on behalf of our most vulnerable residents is commendable and looked upon highly by our local legislators and constituents. Thank you!
