Our NEW Focus!

Linda Hanson | Published on 7/30/2021
Virginia Kase, LWV CEO, has just announced the League's new focus, honing in on our core values to address the current challenges to our democracy.

Women Power Democracy is a four-pronged approach to building trust in our elections, growing our electorate, creating fair voter access, and ensuring community districting reflects our population.

Its components are:

Democracy Truth Project: Countering mis- and disinformation in our government and advancing public understanding of the democratic process;

Expand the Franchise: Increasing voter participation, with a focus on underrepresented populations and low-propensity voters;

Democracy Defense Fund: Protecting voting rights and advancing a more equitable democracy through advocacy and voter protection efforts; and 

People Powered Fair MapsTM: Leading with advocacy, public education, and organizing to create transparent, people-powered electoral maps and eliminate gerrymandering during 2021 redistricting. 

Watch for further announcements, trainings, and workshops to support this work.  If you’ve not done so, please sign up for email updates from LWVUS:
