League members act as the eyes and ears of the public

Because we have studied government policy carefully, we offer effective and knowledgeable input to improve the public decision-making process. We stand for responsible, responsive, efficient and representative government, as well as for protection of the right to vote for every citizen.

When the League speaks, our voice is respected

Decision-makers know we have done our homework and offer an important and balanced perspective. League members monitor and take action on many public policy issues, including:

The League has a new position on federal agriculture policies

League members from Portland and through out the US participated in developing a new position on federal agriculture policies.

The League works to educate citizens

The League of Women Voters is nonpartisan. We do not support or oppose candidates or political parties. Rather, our activities encourage the informed and active participation of citizens in government—not only at election time, but all year long.
