Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Louisiana Chief Executive Officer Angel Nelson and Chief Development Officer Emily Sparks joined nearly 300 other Boys & Girls Clubs leaders in Washington D.C. in honor of Boys & Girls Clubs of America's 10th annual National Days of Advocacy. Throughout the week, they met with important members of Congress to discuss the issues impacting youth in Louisiana.

Every spring, hundreds of advocates from Boys & Girls Clubs come to Washington D.C. to raise their voices on issues and solutions impacting America’s youth at BGCA’s National Days of Advocacy. This inspirational event gives Club leaders, board members, alumni, youth, and supporters the opportunity to share their Club impact stories directly with members of Congress and their staff.

Senator Bill Cassidy, Senator John Kennedy, Congressman Garret Graves, Congressman Troy Carter, Congressman Steve Scalise, and Speaker Mike Johnson all met with Angel and Emily to discuss important issues facing the youth we serve and how they can get involved in the movement.
