Since 1971, the Junior Leagues of California State Public Affairs Committee (CalSPAC) has represented the interests of its member Leagues and their community projects to policymakers at the national, state, and local levels. CalSPAC advocates for legislation favorable to its member Leagues’ projects and issues in: education, family support, health, human trafficking, and violence prevention.
The members of the CalSPAC delegation advocate for specific legislation relevant to member league issues, educate their home Junior League members about advocacy and public policy, and coordinate the exchange of information from community-based league projects to policymakers. Since 1992, CalSPAC has sponsored six bills and co-sponsored three bills that are now California Law; sponsored two California Resolutions; and co-sponsored one Congressional Resolution.
CalSPAC represents 17 member Junior Leagues comprised of over 10,000 women who volunteer over 140,000 hours to 111 community projects, and give over $1 million dollars annually to their communities.
