URGENT ACTION NEEDED BY 1PM ON MONDAY, 04/20!

OPPOSE HB 7111. If passed, HB 7111 would allow state-funded adoption agencies to turn away qualified adoptive parents because of their sexual orientation. This could make it more difficult for the 850 Florida children waiting to be adopted to find loving, caring homes.

FFCR supports adoption by qualified parents of any sexual orientation, and we hope that you will join us in emailing or calling the Florida Senate Rules Committee Members to urge them to vote NO on HB 7111.

Let's take action before HB 7111 comes before the Rules Committee on Monday at 1pm.
