Making Democracy Work

Action and Advocacy

We are truly a grassroots organization...

The League of Women Voters takes action on an issue or advocates for a cause when there is an existing League position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause.

Positions result from a process of of member agreement about that topic which is reached by group discussion after thorough research and study on the topic is presented in an unbiased manner,. The purpose of having a League position is to use that position to influence public policy. For more information on Positions and the League process, see our Action and Advocacy page.
