ADVOCACY

The Junior League of Atlanta (JLA) has a long history of its members working directly with local, regional, and state governments to advocate on policies directly affecting our community focus.  Currently, JLA tracks policy initiatives and advocates on policies that improve the lives of women and children at risk, or support one of our three issues: Commercial Sexual Exploitation/Human Trafficking, Early Childhood Education and Generational Poverty.

Our advocacy efforts also include presenting advocacy breakfasts for business and community leaders to better understand our complex issues, creating and promoting public awareness campaigns, and holding an annual JLA Capitol Day.
