1. Encourage informed and active participation in governmet.
2. Increase understanding of major public policy issues.
3. Influence public policy through education and advocacy.
We accomplish these goals thorugh Voter Service/Citizen Education and Action/Advocacy. These are two distinct roles:
- Voters Service/Citizen Education - we present unbiased, nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.
To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we may use funds from the League of Women Voters of Flint, Michigan Education Fund, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization.
- Action/Advocacy - we are nonpartisan, but, after study, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.
