LWV Diablo Valley Action Committee

LWV Diablo Valley Action Committee

League members take action on issues where we have studied the topic and have reached conclusions that are embodied in our positions. Our Action/Advocacy Committee meets monthly (see Calendar of Events). Recent activities have included advocacy for affordable housing proposals in several cities, support of extending the county healthcare plan to undocumented immigrants, and statements on the Concord Naval Weapons Station re-use plans. We have been advocating for an Independent Redistricting Commission in Martinez.

Notes from recent meetings can be found in the Members Only section.

We helped qualify this initiative last year, but the Schools and Communities First coalition has made some changes that will make it even easier to get this passed on the November 2020 ballot. We are joining the LWVC and other local Leagues and coalition partners to gather signatures to re-file this improved initiative.

Affordable housing, available housing, any housing - housing writ large - is an overwhelming concern in our state and our community. Everyone responds in different ways. To find out more, I recently met with Lafayette’s Interim City Manager, Niroop Srivatsa.
