The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
YOUR VOICE AND YOUR VOTE DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
"If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito."--Attributed to the Dalai Lama XIV
This is always one of our most lively discussions covering the impressive number of local and national issues that can be addressed by our League because these positions have been adopted by League members after extensive and thorough study and consensus. A great opportunity that allows members -- newly joined and long time -- to share their perspectives on several positions.
The League of Women Voters was born in the fight for the 19th Amendment's ratification. In celebration of its 95th birthday, LWVUS shared some vintage pictures of ordinary women who led the fight for its ratification. Here are a couple to illustrate League's long standing commitment of voting rights for all our citizens. Hope you enjoy these memories!
