2023-24 Legislative Advocacy
The League remains focused most intensively on its Making Democracy Work (MDW) campaign: voting and elections, redistricting, and opposition to constitutional convention resolutions. The League, as always, will attempt to advocate on all bills falling within our areas of interest as defined in state and national policies. Follow our latest Making Democracy Work (MDW) Network Updates to organizations that share our interests.
LWVSC 2023 Bills of Interest
Women's Reproductive Health
Diverting Public Monies to Religious/Private Schools
The League of Women Voters of South Carolina supports the right of all persons to autonomy in decision-making associated with health care. The ability to control our bodies, to have privacy in medical decision-making, and the right to make personal health care decisions are fundamental to our health, dignity, and freedom. The League opposes S. 627 and its companion bill S.623, because they violate these rights.
