History of the LWV Eden Area

This year marks our Chapter’s sixtieth anniversary. For sixty years, LWVEA diligently carried out its mission through voter education and services. LWVEA has conducted studies and/or educational forums on mental health, health care, energy, the education system, juvenile justice, transparency in government, voting systems, state and local finance, land use, parks and open space, and boards and commissions, water, transportation, and housing issues in CA. Members of the Eden Area League have given thousands of hours to their communities with these forums, voter drives, and other services.

The League has conducted hundreds of candidates’ forums, distributed more than 100,000 of the highly respected Pros and Cons on ballot measures in several languages, registered thousands of voters, maintained over 80 voter affidavit distribution sites, and provided speakers at various forums and debates. The Eden Area League has also participated in national, state, and county studies on important issues such as reapportionment, state constitution amendments, employment and education issues, foreign policy, civil rights, and land use in the Bay Area.

Currently, there are about 120 active members in our chapter and fifteen board members. LWVEA is proud to be part of our community and is committed to serving the people of the Eden Area.
