Did you know the Junior Leagues of Florida State Public Affairs Committee (Florida SPAC) is the reason Florida has the guardian ad litem program or stronger booster seat laws, and every year, more than 25 Florida Junior League chapters come together to advocate before Florida House and Senate members to effect more positive changes for women and children in Florida law? Would you like to learn more about this work and how you can join the advocacy effort?
If so, please join our inaugural “Bubbles and Bills” event to learn more about the work and impact of the Junior Leagues of Florida State Public Affairs Committee, a preview of the 2023 state legislative session, and the issues and bills Junior Leagues of Florida will be supporting in 2023. Afterward, learn how to advocate for the same issues before your legislative delegation in Lakeland. Bubbly beverages, refreshments, and heavy h’ors d’oevures will be served.
