PAVE Advocacy is an educational arm of the Government Affairs and Advocacy Department at the Jewish Federation. Our mission is to educate, inform, and excite people into action via events that create a safe environment for open dialogue and allow people to voice their opinions. We unite together in our shared values and work to make our state a better place to live, raise our families, and call home.
