Why and How to Join This Grassroots Organization?
Citizenship is more than just something to hold. It's a hands-on responsibility, one to be exercised that strengthens the individual and the democratic process. At the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles, we believe that our democracy and our institutions can only be as strong, vibrant and accountable as the people they represent and serve are informed and engaged. And through the public policy studies we conduct, the unbiased voter information we distribute, the civic engagement education we provide and the advocacy work we do, we give the people of Los Angeles the knowledge and resources they need to be active, informed and effective participants in civic life.
