Community Focus

Healthy Child Initiative (HCI):

The Junior League of Charlotte’s community programs, projects and advocacy are all focused on the physical, dental and mental health needs of children aged 0-17 years and their families in the Charlotte community.

Advocacy

The Junior League of Charlotte’s Advocacy and Public Awareness (APA) committee 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.

APA educates League Members, community organizations, and policy-makers on issues facing JLC members and the communities we serve. Our advocacy efforts fall into the following categories:

  • Draft policy recommendations
  • Act as JLC liaisons with city, state and federal legislators
  • Host voter registration drives and Meet the Candidate events

Current focus continues to sustain the Healthy Child Initiative: dental, mental, and physical health. To learn more about our advocacy efforts, please click here.
