in Uncategorized by

A group of the state’s most influential political leaders will gather in Tallahassee tomorrow for the annual Legislative Prayer Breakfast of the Florida Faith & Freedom Coalition. 

The morning event begins at 7:30 a.m. in the Grand Ballroom of The Doubletree Hotel in downtown Tallahassee.

Speakers on the agenda include Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam; House Speaker Will Weatherford; State Sen. Anitere Flores and Rep. Dennis Baxley; Florida Right to Life President Carrie Eisnaugle; and Florida Faith & Freedom Coalition Chair Jim Kallinger.

Founded in the 1990s by Christian Coalition founder Ralph Reed, Jr., the Faith & Freedom Coalition is an ecumenical, socially conservative non-profit organization, which is committed to “educating, equipping, and mobilizing people of faith and like-minded individuals to be effective citizens.”

The goal of the association is to influence public policy and enact legislation to “strengthen families, protect the dignity of life and marriage, lowers the tax burden and require the government to live within its financial resources.”

Co-hosting the breakfast is the anti-abortion Florida Right to Life alliance.

The Doubletree Hotel is located at 101 S. Adams St. in Tallahassee.
