Set aside January 26th for this important opportunity to help choose what we want the LWV Oakland and the LWV California to focus on in the coming year. The League is a truly grassroots organization that sets its agenda through the Program Planning process.
At this LWVO Program Planning/Policy Review meeting, we’ll be discussing League policy and positions at the state and local levels. Where should the League focus its energy? We will explore and identify issues of concern to us here in Oakland. What is our role in 2019? Remember: Advocacy is a key League activity year ‘round. For example, California Leagues supported or opposed 7 of the 11 statewide ballot measures in November, and in addition, many bills we supported from climate change to voting rights were signed into law.
We will explore what we will do to participate in the LWVUS Campaign to Make Democracy Work. Was there an issue on the ballot this year on which you wished the League had been able to take a stand so that we should have a new or updated study? This is your opportunity to make your voice heard and make a difference.
Before you come to the meeting on the 26th, take a look at the following documents to be ready for our discussion:
