The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government while not supporting any party or candidate. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
This conference is an intensive four day training experience held in the spring and is designed to immerse students in the process by which public policy is proposed, enacted and changed in New York State and educate them as to how they can influence and affect this process.
Your support and membership goes directly to the League's work to protect and defend our democracy. Together we can ensure our elections are free, fair and accessible, protect our environment, and reduce the influence of money in our elections.
Your donations to the Educational Fund support work such as printed voter guides and the Students Inside Albany internship program. Other donations suport special advocacy work such as "I Voted" stickers and Lobby Day at the New York State Legislature.
