How We Create League Positions for Action and Advocacy
We are truly a grassroots organization...
The League of Women Voters will take action on an issue or advocate for a cause. We do this at the local, state, and national levels. However, we only take action or advocate once we have developed a League Position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause.
How we develop a League Position
- Agreement of the League membership that an issue deserves further study
- Study of the issue
- Presentation of the study results to the members
- Membership discussion and consensus
- Creation of a Consensus Statement and Position
