Since 1920, the League of Women Voters has been an activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that people should play a critical role in democracy. Throughout the years, the League has continued its dual purposes of education and advocacy.
The League has been called "watchdogs in heels" as we seek to hold government accountable. Sharon Blackwood, LWV Gwinnett, will lead our Observer Corps Training. Learn how to observe and monitor our local government agencies. Training is open to members of the community as well as League of Women Voters members. Cost includes Observer Corps Button.
Become a Voter Education Ambassador. Learn how to help friends and neighbors prepare to vote in 2020. Accurately answer questions about voter ID, voter registration, absentee voting, and the election process. Training is open to members of the community as well as League of Women Voters members. Training facilitation by Gayla Keesee, LWVCSRA and Anna Sato, LWV Marietta-Cobb.
Text voters and help us educate and inform voters in Georgia. We will be Hustling all day, but those unfamiliar with Hustle can join us at 6:00 PM for a brief training via Zoom and then Hustle together until 8:30PM. Stick around for a half hour for social time so that we can get to know our fellow activists better.
