Advocacy Opportunities

Beth Am is heavily involved in supporting legislative initiatives, both in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, and at our State Capitol in Sacramento. We provide this support by arranging community educational programs, making direct contact with our legislators and government representatives, and by utilizing state-of-the-art tools, such as Click-My-Cause that enable our members’ voices to be heard accurately, effectively, easily and quickly.
