We ARE making democracy work in Multnomah County! Our services give people the tools they need to vote and to participate in democracy. We depend on donations to fund the work of our volunteers.  If you are already a member of the League–thank you! But we need more than your dues to fund our work locally in the Portland area. Please help us fulfill our mission: Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy.
