ADVOCACY IN MICHIGAN
State Policy Advocates (SPA)
An SPA is an NCJW | MI volunteer, appointed by our National NCJW office, and assigned to be the voice of NCJW public policy issues in our state. SPAs monitor policy in our state, represent NCJW to state policymakers and in coalitions, and act as a key contact on federal issues to members of our Congress. Our SPAs chair a committee of NCJW members who are interested in advocacy.
