Hosting Panel Discussion with City Council Members
The JLP’s State Public Affairs Committee (SPAC) is excited to announce that the JLP’s February General Membership Meeting will feature a panel starring two members of the Pasadena City Council.

National Voter Registration Day
The Junior League of Pasadena is part of National Voter Registration Day, a national effort to strengthen our community by registering voters on September 27, 2016.
First started for the 2012 presidential election, National Voter Registration Day has
become a 50-state holiday when thousands of organizations and volunteers organize to
ensure our family, friends, and neighbors are registered to vote.
Why register in 2016?
Our answer: This year’s presidential election is going to be one of the most important of our lifetime. As a non-partisan coalition of organizations, National Voter Registration Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved no matter what party you support or which issues matter most to you.
The JLP invites you to register to vote and learn more at www.NationalVoterRegistrationDay.org and use #VoterRegistrationDay on social media
to spread the word!
Once you’re registered to vote, there are many other ways you can get involved:
- Join a local National Voter Registration Day event: www.nationalvoterregistrationday.org/Events
- Step up to host your own local event with your family, friends and neighbors to make sure everyone you know is registered.
- Get reminders via email or text message so you don’t forget September 27 is the big day! Sign up here: www.nationalvoterregistrationday.org/
We’re excited to be able to join hundreds of groups across America for this important
Thank you for your support!
Your idea could become law!
In your work in the community, have you ever thought, “there really ought to be a law about…” or “a law would really help”? If so, your SPAC delegates would love to hear from you!
The most thoroughly researched submission will be recognized at the October GMM with an announcement and a prize! Submission due by 11:59pm on October 10th.
Every year, the State Public Affairs Committee (SPAC) delegates from 17 Junior Leagues in California meet to review all of the suggestions presented by members across the state. As a group, they decide which idea to sponsor as a piece of original legislation in California and work with legislators to turn the idea into law.
Let’s make 2016 the year that the winning idea comes from the Junior League of Pasadena!
