Advocacy Committee

Advocacy Committee

The Advocacy Committee exists to promote awareness and action on League positions and issues. This is achieved in numerous ways. When applicable, action alerts from National, State and local Leagues are published on our website and in the monthly Voter newsletter. An advocacy component on relevant topic issues and/or current events are featured at every League Day. In addition, we actively collaborate with the League committees to educate them on the Legislative process, identifying effective ways in which to advocate and develop target messaging skills.

The League has established extensive positions on healthcare at the national level.

The League only takes action on issues after careful study and consensus by members.  The result of this process is called a position, and our positions define what action we can take on an issue.  We have positions at each level of government and we take action at all levels.

How We Form Our Action Positions (

The League of Women Voters takes action on issues only when we have a position addressing that particular issue.  Members must study and come to consensus on an issue in order to form a position. This thorough grassroots process ensures that we have a sense of the political environment.
