This is our monthly advocacy meeting for Board members and other League members with specific issues they are following.


The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin talked with real Wisconsin voters - in their own spaces - and asked them to tell their stories of why they're a Wisconsin voter. The Be A Wisconsin Voter video series showcases their unique stories about why they vote and why the right to vote is important.
