Public Affairs Committee

JLWS impacts the community with volunteers on the front line and behind the scenes to directly affect our focus areas of:

  • Educating and Mentoring Youth from birth to age 18
  • Women’s Health: Prevention of Chronic and Debilitating Diseases

Another way JLWS members affect positive change is through advocacy. Regardless of a member’s placement being a community or in-league position, all JLWS members can make a difference by staying informed, communicating with legislators, and championing solutions for problems in our community and world to ensure that all live healthy and productive lives.

Addressing the JLWS focus area in women’s health, links are provided here that assist JLWS members in becoming educated about the issues and engaged in the solutions. Challenge yourself to make a change – a change that can start right now!
