OUR MISSION AND ROLES:

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. We never support or oppose any political party or candidate.

 

The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.

  • Action/Advocacy: we are also nonpartisan, but, after study, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.

 

To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we use funds from the League of Women Voters Education Fund, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization. The League of Women Voters, a membership organization, conducts action and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation.

Visions, Beliefs, and Intentions:

The goal of the League of Women Voters is to empower citizens to shape better communities worldwide. 

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political membership organization which: 

  • acts after study and member agreement to achieve solutions in the public interest on key community issues at all government levels.

  • builds citizen participation in the democratic process. 

  • engages communities in promoting positive solutions to public policy issues through education and advocacy.

The League of Women Voters Education Fund is a nonpartisan public policy educational organization which:

League Principles. The League of Women Voters believes in representative government and in the individual liberties established in the Constitution of the United States. The League of Women Voters believes that democratic government depends upon the informed and active participation of its citizens and requires that governmental bodies protect the citizen’s right to know by giving adequate notice of proposed actions, holding open meetings and making public records accessible. The League of Women Voters believes that responsible government should be responsive to the will of the people, that government should maintain an equitable and flexible system of taxation, promote the conservation and development of natural resources in the public interest, share in the solution of economic and social problems that affect the general welfare, promote a sound economy and adopt domestic policies that facilitate the solution of international problems. The League of Women Voters believes that cooperation with other nations is essential in the search for solutions to world problems and that the development of international organization and international law is imperative in the promotion of world peace.

ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE:

LWVGT has a diversified Board with a mix of both elected and appointed members. The position of LWVGT Coordinator, the person who handles the administrative work of the League rotates to a new person on a quarterly basis. The Spokesperson who is the public voice of the LWVGT serves a one year term. This has proven to be a successful structure that both encourages involvement at the Board level and builds experience in our League.

We are currently meeting by Zoom until Covid-19 restrictions lift. We meet on the first Tuesday from 5pm - 6pm. Please e-mail us for the link. We still have informative guest speakers and wonderful fellowship!
