The League of Women Voters uses a time-tested method for taking positions on issues. Members study an issue, use local League meetings to develop consensus on the issues raised in the study, and then adopt a written statement of position on the issue, which is approved by the Board.
Local League adopted positions may be used as the basis for advocacy at the city or county government to which the position applies. Local League positions may be found on each local League’s website.
PROGRAM IN ACTION (PIA) is designed to help League Leaders make effective use of LWVWA policy positions. It is a brief summary of studies, consensus and action taken by the League of Women Voters of Washington since the 1920s. League positions are included in their entirety. PIA is updated every two years with additional background material and any new positions statements.
UPDATE: On April 10, 2023 the Local News and Shoreline Management positions were approved by the LWVWA board. They will be included in future editions of Program in Action.
