advocacy (3)Advocacy is at the core of what JWW does. As one of our three pillars, we advocate to make genocide and mass atrocities prevention a priority for the United States Government. We work with leaders in our government — members of Congress, the administration, the State Department, USAID, etc. — to raise awareness of ongoing atrocity situations, provide suggested actions, and advocate for the prioritization of prevention in US foreign policy.

We mobilize our network of grassroots activists to take meaningful actions in support of ending and preventing genocide and mass atrocities, providing opportunities to send letters to their representatives, sign petitions, and take action on social media, all of which helps keep these issues in the forefront of our leader’s minds.

Meet With Your Representatives

Your representatives need to hear from their constituents on the issues that matter most to them, and in-district advocacy in the form of in-person meetings with your members of Congress and their staff is one of the most effective form of advocacy. When representatives are in their district offices it is a prime opportunity for you to meet with them and their staff on genocide and atrocities prevention issues.

JWW can help you schedule your in-district meeting, provide you with tips and tricks, and even host an advocacy training session. JWW hosts advocacy training in the greater Los Angeles area, throughout the year. If you are located outside of the LA area, we can host a virtual training session for you and your community.
