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.
July 18, 2017 is the first day of the Special Session. For the next 30 days, the League will aggressively advocate for our positions. We need your help supporting League positions.
Be prepared to contact your Senator and Representative! Elected officials will be under a lot of pressure. They need to hear from constituents! They can easily fold and give in on important issues like vouchers. Representatives especially need to hear from voters. You have a voice. BE LOUD! Visit, call, write, e-mail and then repeat!
Make your actions even more effective:
We are looking for the next person who exemplifies the characteristics of Susan B. Anthony -- her independence, persistence, determination and dedication in obtaining equal rights for all. Early in her life she developed a sense of justice and moral zeal. Anthony was assertive and compassionate by nature. She had a keen mind and a great ability to inspire.
To that end, we are making an appeal to our members and key community organizations to help us identify the twenty-second Susan B. Anthony award recipient and make our major fundraising event a continued success.
