LWV Positions on issues

How the League Takes a Position

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.
