As a nonprofit, we exist to address a societal need. To achieve our vision – providing hope and economic opportunity for all – it is a key tenet of the new JVS SoCal Strategic Plan to engage actively in advocacy and the shaping of public policy.  Legislators at all levels of government directly impact the individuals and families we serve. Therefore, it is an imperative for JVS SoCal that we engage with them on policy issues affecting workforce development in order to better inform their decisions. Additionally, our success is strengthened by our collaborations and partnerships with stakeholders as well as the opportunity to share best practices and bring innovation to the field.

For more information about our advocacy efforts, please contact JVS SoCal Director of Government Relations Mark R. Edwards
