The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan civic organization founded in 1920 in order to support women suffrage rights.
“The League began as a ‘mighty political experiment’ designed to help 20 million women carry out their new responsibilities as voters. It encouraged them to use their new power to participate in shaping public policy. From the beginning, the League has been an activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that citizens should play a critical role in advocacy.”
They continue to operate today on the local, state, and national level. One of our very own mentors is chair of the local civics workshop initiative covering the ABC’s of government.
