Advocacy

The Junior League of Chicago’s Advocacy Council identifies and researches policy issues important to the JLC, advocating on its behalf.  It builds coalitions with like-minded organizations and promotes awareness and dialogue among JLC membership and the community.

The Advocacy Council educates League Members, community organizations, and policy-makers on issues facing JLC members and the communities we serve. Our advocacy council falls into the following categories:

  • Draft policy recommendations
  • Act as JLC liaisons with city, state and federal legislators
  • Host voter registration drives, voter raffles and Meet the Candidate events
  • Host Speaker event local government officials

The Junior League has three focus areas in the Community:

HEALTH AND WELLNESS
