Week Three (8/9) - Reasons to Join or Renew
By: Rachel Daly
I am a continuing member of the League of Women Voters Organization because their mission and community service actions align with my core values. They help connect women and other voters to politics and public affairs, where they are so often not well represented; along with encouraging and supportive more active roles. The purpose of democracy and the fundamentals upon which the United States was founded were rooted in the idea of equality for all individuals. Women and other under-represented groups have views, perspectives and ideals that are unique and need to be considered in-order for our government to serve or represent the collective whole.
Rachael Daly is a new member who joined LWV of Orange Coast at the urging of her daughter, MacKenzie.
