WOMEN POWER DEMOCRACY

We have seen new barriers to voting and attacks on our democracy since the 2020 elections. To combat these threats, the League of Women Voters is launching a new organizational investment in our democracy. Women Power Democracy is aimed at tackling the systemic challenges to voting rights that we have seen grow in the past year. This initiative works through advocacy, litigation, and organizing to create equity and accessibility in our election and voting process. Learn more about this initiative and how to get involved at the link below! And don’t forget, one of the best ways to power democracy is through becoming a member of The League!
