Advocacy

Thank you to all our members who joined us on

March 1o, 2016 for SPAC Capitol Day!

and March 7-11, 2016 for Little Black Dress Initiative!

Here is a video showing just a few of our amazing members who helped bring poverty awareness to their social media circle.  This social media campaign helps bring awareness to poverty in our local community, so that together we can #makepovertyunfashionable.  In conjunction with our LBDI social media campaign, Sweet Repeat Dresses will be accepting used prom dresses at Sage School (800 Satellite Blvd in Suwanee) on March 12th, 26th, April 2nd, 9th, and 16th.  Local teens in need will be able to shop for a dress of their choosing during their semi-annual free dress event.

The Junior League of Gwinnett and North Fulton Counties (JLGNF) works closely with other area Junior Leagues to focus on issues affecting the women and children of Georgia. Our State Public Affairs Committee (SPAC) researches issues affecting women and children in our state and lobbies for proposed legislation beneficial to women and children.

Below is a comprehensive list of government websites that will help answer your questions regarding voting, proposed legislation and provide lists of our legislatures. If there is a particular issue, regarding women and children in Georgia, that you would like us to research, please contact our Community Vice President at communityvp@jlgnf.org.
