  • President of the LWVUS, Chris Carson wrote: “The New York Times ran an op-ed titled, How the Suffrage Movement Betrayed Black Women. The League is not mentioned by name in this piece, but we should have been. Our founders and early leaders were not inclusive of all women. African Americans were excluded through much of our history.  We have submitted a letter to the editor to the Times addressing our place in this history. These are hard truths to face but an important part of our story that we will continue to address as we approach our 100th Anniversary.

The national office has renewed our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Going forward, every League Update will now have a DEI section where we share tools, articles, and updates that address our commitment.”
