“Speaking with one voice” is an important tenet of the League. The national League provides strategies and action policies to ensure a consistent message on national issues, and similarly state Leagues are responsible for a coherent state message. Neighboring local Leagues often collaborate to ensure regional issues are addressed uniformly.
Only the president (or designee) speaks for the League in an official capacity; however, members are encouraged to act as individuals. When responding to an Action Alert, for example, a local League president would send a message on behalf of the organization, and members might contact the same official as individuals without mention of League affiliation. Responding as an individual strengthens your action with legislators.
Members are encouraged to reach out to their elected officials on issues as individuals. Please use the Directories of Elected Officials below to find your state senator or representative. Alternatively, consider registering for Vote411. Simply by entering your address, Vote411 will provide you names and contact information for your designated legislators.
