JPAC has a long history of advocating on behalf of critical social service programs that serve those members of our community most in need and this year is no exception. We will be meeting with over 50 legislators to ask for their yes votes on these critical bills. For those who cannot join us in person, please consider writing letters or calling your representatives to ask for their support.
