League of Women Voters Shaker Heights Chapter
The Shaker Heights Chapter of the League of Women Voters Greater Cleveland is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization of over 165 women and men members, a chapter of the LWV of Greater Cleveland. The Shaker Chapter seeks to educate about what's happening in our city, county and beyond; research and report on key issues; and urge citizens to vote and make their voices heard. We welcome new members to be part of voter registration, forums, and other activities in education and advocacy.
