Hanging of Hands

St. James Children’s Center on Plantation Key is again participates in the ‘Hanging of the Hands’ in the Florida State Capitol Rotunda. Each year, young children, teachers and families decorate tens of thousands of pieces of hand artwork for display during the Children’s Week Florida event, which began in 1986, at the state capitol. These hands serve as a reminder to legislators, advocates and visitors that thousands of Florida’s children are impacted by the policy decisions made by the Legislature, whose 60-day session began Jan. 11.
