We are empowering Vermont women by helping them develop civic leadership skills, then giving them the tools to put their unique talents to work in our community.
We are creating real change in the Champlain Valley and beyond by advancing social activism-focused projects that directly benefit our local community. We make a positive impact through effective action and leadership.
To the Junior League of Champlain Valley, becoming a civic leader begins with understanding that local efforts can have a global reach. If you’re interested in collaborating with like-minded women on impactful local projects, you’re in the right place.
A message from the JLCV Board of Directors:
The women of the Junior League of Champlain Valley are the heart of our organization. Our members are diverse, intelligent, caring, hardworking members of the community with differing lives and beliefs united by the common goal of educating and empowering women in support of the communities in which we live. Specifically, the JLCV is stridently committed to making lasting change in the area of affordable living, which is inextricably intertwined with the issue of maternal and child health. It is because of this mission and focus, which was adopted by the full JLCV membership, that we issue this statement. The JLCV is expressly non-partisan.
On Friday, June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court released its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned the legal precedent of Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood, removing the federal right to reproductive liberty and leaving the decision of legality and access up to each individual state.
Decisions involving health and families are deeply personal and should be made with medical advice and thoughtful consideration. As an organization for women, we are committed to ensuring access to accurate information when making such decisions. Since 2019, the right to personal reproductive liberty has been codified in Vermont law, and may be further strengthened following the November 2022 general election when Proposal 5 is put to voters. Should Proposal 5 pass, Vermont will become the first state in the country to enshrine personal reproductive liberty in its constitution.
We recognize that people have felt and are feeling a range of emotions with respect to this topic, and we as a Board are committed to ensuring JLCV is a safe place for all women to be their authentic selves and will support them in their unique journeys.
