What We Do
- The League of Women Voters promotes an open governmental system that is representative, accountable and responsive.
- We make complex and controversial issues clearer to the average citizen in an unbiased way.
- We build citizen participation in the democratic process by providing nonpartisan information on issues and candidates through debates, forums, publications and community dialogues.
- We also research critical, and sometimes controversial, public issues of concern to our members, such as campaign finance, welfare reform, education and the environment.
- We provide a wide range of nonpartisan information services: citizen education, voter registration, workshops and conferences.
- We sponsor and staff community discussions on topics such as education, charter revision, land use and many other local issues.
- We train community leaders and activists at home and abroad.
- We help citizens become better informed members of their communities and have a greater say in the laws we live by.
