Advocacy in action creates greater impact!

As an advocate instrumental in passing Florida’s Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act, named in memory of her husband who was killed in a red-light running crash, Melissa Wandall’s personal tragedy became her mission.  After four years of working with state legislature, the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act passed in 2010 allowing Florida communities to utilize red-light safety cameras to help make their streets safe. The Act has also raised over 12.3 million dollars for The Miami Project for Paralysis and 33.5 million for 22 Level 1 Trauma Centers in Florida. As a committed advocate, Melissa continues to fight every year to prevent the repeal of the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act, which has seen a reduction in red-light running crashes at Florida’s worst intersections.

“Advocacy is an action many people attempt but few have perfected. Melissa Wandall has mastered the art of advocacy. She is passionate with the effective balance of emotion and information.”

Cynthia A. Henderson, Cynergy Consulting
