Our mission is to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation in government. We pursue our mission through education on major public policy issues and by influencing public policy through research and advocacy. Through collaboration with community organizations and by advocacy with local government, we’ve been able to make a positive impact in voter education and engagement by: - Supporting more voter participation in under-served communities - Development of fair representation through nonpartisan re-districting and campaign finance reform - Creating new ways to evaluate citizen oversight committees
Dating to its founding in 1920, the League of Women Voters U.S. has a long, proud history of expanding voter access, fighting voter suppression, advocating for limits of money in politics, and opposing partisan and racial gerrymandering.
