Key Issues

What Are The League's Key Issues In California?

The Issues for Emphasis adopted by Convention 2017 delegates for 2017-2019 are:

  • Making Democracy Work in California (election reform, redistricting, money in politics, voting rights and expanding the electorate)
  • Natural Resources (climate change, water, and land use)
  • Response to Changing Federal Policies and Budget Actions (tax reform, healthcare, protecting the environment, and immigration)

Why Are These The League's Key Issues in California?

In League, Program means the issues that we choose for concerted study, education and action at local, state and national levels. Program can include both education and action.

The Program Planning process is part of what makes the League a grassroots organization; each League member has the opportunity to influence the selection of issues where the local, state, and national League will focus time, talent and money.

Every two years, members of California Leagues engage in Program Planning for the state League. Based on the results of this, the LWVC Board of Directors makes recommendations to the biennial convention delegates about the program to be adopted for the coming two year period.
