About Middle Class Champions

The Middle Class Champions awards recognize those legislators that consistently fight for Florida’s working families. Each of these legislative leaders stood up to protect and expand Florida's middle class 100% of the time with their votes. The issues they were scored on range from supporting our local public schools, to protecting Florida’s land and water, from supporting health care expansion to protecting women’s access to reproductive health care, and more.

The Middle Class Champions awards serve as a vehicle for Florida’s working families to acknowledge and thank the legislators who are looking out for them 100% of the time. Progress Florida and the America Votes table have partnered since 2011 to present the Middle Class Champions awards.
