About Us

Our Mission and Vision

The Mission of the LWVCA
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.

Vision Statement of the LWVCA
The League of Women Voters of the Cincinnati Area is our area's premier civic organization. We are visible and engage our members and community in public policy initiatives, educate and advocate for voter rights, and provide expanded voter services.

What We Do

The League of Women Voters has three separate and distinct roles:
League member with sign: "Community Issues Forum - Christ Church Cathedral"
  • Action/Advocacy: we are a nonpartisan organization, but, after study, we use our public policy positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest. You can participate in this work by joining one of our issues committees or keeping an eye on the newsletter for specific events.
  • Membership/Volunteerism: We make lifelong connections and friendships while volunteering to help our community. Each month we meet in small "units" or neighborhood discussion groups at locations throughout the county to plan our work and educate ourselves. Visit a unit meeting to see League in Action. Our monthly newsletter, The Voter, shares information on all our activities.

Membership Activities

Get involved with the League today:

  • Unit Meetings are our grassroot core -- small meetings throughout the region where we meet together to study, act, and socialize.
  • Committees and teams include issue study groups as well as voter registration, fundraising, membership and more. 
  • Office and mailing volunteers are always welcome to help with some regular tasks and of course notices to our members and community.
