Florida Citizens Alliance About

Our mission

To improve Florida’s K-12 education by uniting and empowering teachers, students, and parents.

What We Do

Through community outreach, scholarships, education alternatives, and legislative action, Florida Citizens Alliance provides solutions for improving K-12 education in Florida.


What motivates us

We are motivated every time we see a child and their parents take advantage of their education. We strive to educate parents on their options so that they feel empowered to make the best decision for their family.

Our public education system is failing America’s students academically, civically and morally. Florida children are being indoctrinated in a public school system that undermines their individual rights and destroys our nation’s founding principles and family values.

What we Do

Our primary causes

At Florida Citizens Alliance, our primary causes revolve around promoting legislative action, engaging local communities, and providing alternative education resources. We actively advocate for meaningful education reform through collaboration with policymakers, while our KIDS FIRST teams engage parents, teachers, and students to empower them in making informed decisions about education. Through our Liberty Scholar initiative, we offer alternative education resources such as online courses and curriculum options. By uniting and empowering teachers, students, and parents, we strive to create a brighter future for Florida’s K-12 education system, prioritizing academic excellence, individual rights, and family values.


Community Involvement

We engage with community leaders to help them understand current issues in our public education system how each of them can help to improve it…putting the kids first.

Education Solutions

We provide parents and grandparents with alternative education resources, such as scholarship information, so that you can easily choose the best education for your family.

Legislative Action

We advocate for parental choice and solutions that fuel student success with 100% of donations going directly to educating the public and supporting legislative action.

Our Core Values

Economic Freedom

We embrace and value the individual’s creative and productive energies. We seek to enable individual initiative by affirming private property rights, the sanctity of contracts, and open, competitive markets. We resist the inherently restrictive nature of an overbearing government safety net and see it as entrapping; antithetical to self-respect.

Individual Liberty

We affirm the words of the Declaration of Independence, that all people “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights. ”It is the purpose of government to secure the rights of the individual. We respect the individual autonomy of all individuals and their right to use and/or dispose of their property in pursuit of their own aspirations. We affirm the responsibility of all citizens to respect the rights of others.


We remain inherently optimistic because we believe in the capability of people to manage their own affairs and advance their ideas and ideals.


We call on each other to live lives that reflect the ideals of liberty. Such lives are characterized by morality and righteousness as evidenced by a proper pride of character demonstrated by humility, self-restraint, self-discipline and self-reliance.


We hope to develop a dynamic partnership with all groups seeking to inspire a rebirth of liberty in Southwest Florida. In our role as a coalition, we value working together while supporting and encouraging the initiatives of local groups in their communities.


We commit to each other a conviction to live principled lives characterized by the highest values. We agree that there must be congruence between our words and actions.
