Making Democracy Work

The League of Women Voters of Boston is a nonpartisan grassroots organization. We encourage the informed and active participation of citizens in government, work to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy.

The League works to provide objective information on critical public policy issues and conduct debates and forums to increase awareness of candidates seeking office.

We actively encourage a representative system of government that is accountable, efficient, responsive and supportive of citizen participation.
