 OUR ADVOCACY
Making Democracy Work!
The League of Women Voters has public policy positions on many topics. Since its founding in 1920 it has focused its primary advocacy efforts on good government issues that strengthen our democracy, such as
VOTER ACCESS



REDISTRICTING



A FAIR JUDICIARY



ETHICS



DARK MONEY



HOME RULE

 

But the League also advocates on ENVIRONMENTAL, HEALTH, EDUCATION, WOMEN’S RIGHTS, SOCIAL JUSTICE, and many other public policy issues on which it has taken positions.



Our advocacy efforts include
> direct lobbying of our legislative representatives
> encouraging grassroots lobbying by citizens
> presenting educational forums and programs to inform the public about the issues.



All advocacy efforts by the LWV are based on positions that are first studied and researched and then adopted by consensus of the members throughout the United States (national positions) and South Carolina (state positions). Local leagues study and adopt positions within their own leagues.
