Steering Committee

The Steering Committee meets on the first Monday of every month, remotely.

Please join us on next on Monday, February 6th, for the next meeting of JWJ’s Steering Committee. January’s meeting has been cancelled due to holiday break office closure. If you would like to attend the Zoom facilitated Steering Committee meeting, please email our Coalition Organizer, Sarah Kowaleski, and she will send you the info you need to join the meeting.

If your organization would like to be on the agenda at a meeting, please complete the request form below by Noon on the Friday prior to the next meeting. We support campaigns on a monthly basis.

Before you complete the request form please consider the following criteria and priorities.


  • How the action fits into JwJ’s organizational priorities
