Public Policy & Advocacy Award

The purpose of the Public Policy and Advocacy Award is to recognize a League or group of Leagues for their success in using public policy and advocacy as strategies in advancing their community work and causes. Successful efforts will include those where a League or a State Public Affairs Committee (SPAC) have worked to raise awareness, to improve the public policy environment or to influence public policy legislation through specific League-driven initiatives or programs.

    Junior Leagues have been so effective in recent years as advocates that we have established our first Public Policy & Advocacy Award.

    So it’s a pleasure to present the first award in Public Policy & Advocacy to the Junior Leagues of California State Public Affairs Committee for its Maternal Mental Health Advocacy Project, which it began five years ago.
