Waterkeepers Florida Launches Moms for Clean Water Campaign Inspired by Florida’s First Lady
FLORIDA, USA — Earlier this year, First Lady Casey DeSantis made a powerful statement: “We feel an obligation as parents and we feel we should work on behalf of all the parents of this great state to make sure their children have a clean environment and clean water to grow up on."
Waterkeepers Florida applaud the First Lady’s commitment to restoring and protecting our state’s waters, although it is clear our legislature does not share that same sense of urgency. Unfortunately, this legislative session failed to yield any meaningful protective policies for Florida’s waterways. Florida Moms demand better for our children and their children.
Inspired by First Lady DeSantis’ words, Moms for Clean Water represents moms around the state of Florida calling for greater protection for ALL of our water resources. We believe that our water should be clean for our children to safely fish, swim, and drink.
“Seeing my son explore the wonders of the ocean is one of the simplest joys of being a mom. I can’t imagine living here and not being able to swim in our waterways. It is our collective responsibility to ensure clean, healthy waterways for all of our children today and for future generations.,” said Rachel Silverstein, Miami Waterkeeper.
