Who can become a member?

Membership in the League, one of the most respected and effective grassroots organizations in the country, is open to individuals of all genders who are at least age 16.

Why should I join?

In addition to supporting the League, your membership gives us the influence needed to provide a voice for the people and be a force for change. You become a member of the New York State League and the United States League when you join the NYC League. You will receive our publication, They Represent You, along with a copy of our quarterly newsletter, Inside the League. You will have the knowledge that you are adding your voice to a powerful force of members from all 50 states. You will be entitled to vote when the League decides what areas to focus on and whether to take a position on an issue. You'll have opportunities to join our many active committees dedicated to making an impact on New Yorkers' lives. And you’ll get a discount when you attend our events!

How much does it cost?

For a single membership, you can choose a level between $75 and $500 (or $5 for students). The LWVNYC keeps only a small portion of your $75 dues. The rest goes to support the state and national Leagues in their important work. Please consider joining at a higher level! All the extra dues stay with our local League. Dues are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law, since the League, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
