As a service to our community, League of Women Voters creates Toolkits to help inform and motivate active people to take action on current topics. Active LWV Toolkits are listed below.
In April 2020 the U.S. Census Bureau will conduct the decennial census. These numbers will be used for redistricting at the congressional, legislative and local government levels. LWVWA Education Fund is offering a $400 grant to any Local League that puts on a public Census & Redistricting Forum between June 2019 and December 2020. This toolkit includes a prepared Powerpoint slideshow and some tips for a successful forum. Don't wait. Plan your forum today. Click here for downloadable materials.
Climate change is threatening the basic environmental processes that sustain life on Earth. The LWVWA encourages local leagues to use this tool kit to educate, advocate and take political action to secure a livable planet for our children and future generations.
This tool kit is intended to provide a wide range of background material that can be used to understand the Citizens United case and its implications and tools for conducting a public forum. We encourage you to use this toolkit in forums, in your communications and as a resource guide.
