Advocacy

The Junior League of Greenville (JLG) has a long and proud history of advocating for critical issues on behalf of women within our community and across the State.

Currently, the JLG Advocacy Committee, in partnership with the JLG Education and Impact Committees, is working to develop a deeper understanding of the barriers facing women regarding economic mobility and human trafficking within Greenville. The committee is working to identify causes, impacts, and potential advocacy efforts related to each area. 

Current and future activities of the Advocacy Committee include: 

  • Researching local and state advocacy needs related to Economic Mobility and Human Trafficking;
  • Developing relationships with local and state elected officials to better understand the current legislative process; 
  • Organizing two community Lunch and Learns to bring new and updated information to Greenville citizens; and
  • Coordinating JLG voter registration efforts in local, state, and national elections.
