South Florida grassroots leaders make history!

CFC's "Rally for your rights" at Miami-Dade county commission meeting

brings out hundreds of Christians and fills auditorium to capacity!

MIAMI, FL – Today, the Christian Family Coalition (CFC), praised South Florida’s grassroots leaders for mobilizing 250+ Christians to a public hearing on Wednesday, November 14th, in support of the 2012 Legislative Invocation Restoration Ordinance, which will restore the opening prayer before all Miami-Dade County Commission and committee meetings.  The historic turnout of Christians helped propel passage of the ordinance by a unanimous 6-0 vote by the Internal Committee! of the Board of Miami-Dade County Commissioners.  As a result, Miami-Dade is now the largest county in Florida to remove, and then restore, the legislative invocation (opening prayer) before County Commission meetings.

“These grassroots leaders are responsible for mobilizing 250+ Christians to a public hearing in downtown Miami in the middle of the week and in the middle of the day, it is amazing!  Their hard work and dedication proves we can all make a difference in the fight to restore our culture.  This turnout helped lead us to a historic victory in restoring the time-honored tradition of the legislative invocation (opening prayer) before all County commission and committee meetings” stated Anthony Verdugo, Founder and Executive director, Christian Family Coalition (CFC). 

A very special thank you to Maria Lievano-Cruz, legislative aide to County Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz, (our sponsor), for all her help in ushering through this historic piece of legislation.
