We are truly a grassroots organization . . .
Additional discussion, pro and con, takes place as members (not part of the study committee) learn the scope of the study. After the members reach consensus, the board forms positions based on that consensus.
It is the consensus statement -- the statement resulting from the consensus questions -- that becomes a position. Action or advocacy can then be taken on the particular issue addressed by the position. Without a position, the League will not engage in advocacy.
LWVCC supports and encourages citizens to take action on issues of public interest, whether by signing petitions, communicating with elected officials or the media, carrying a poster, or running for office. As an organization, however, the League is non-partisan as to candidates and political parties.
