Legislative Advocacy

Since its inception, we have been committed to legislation aimed at bettering the lives of all children. Past and present legislative advocacy focus have been on violence in the media, health and wellness initiatives, and efforts to increase general civic participation, especially with regard to voting. 

We mobilized our membership to successfully participate in a call to action on the SCHIP legislation, and engaged in coordinated grass roots efforts in support of HR 1688 and S 1564, The All Healthy Children Act, which focuses on strategies to ensure the provision of health coverage to all children. 

Biannually, Jack and Jill mothers and teens participate in the On the Hill Summit in Washington, DC, creating awareness among congressional leaders about our mission and issues that affect American children and their families.
