Talk:League of Women Voters of California
The League of Women Voters of California, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. They do not support or oppose any political party or any candidate. They do, however, take action on selected government issues in the public interest. They operate on a set of principles using our visions, beliefs, and intentions.
The League works at the local, regional, state and national levels, paralleling the levels of government (this organization is the California state League). They have over 65 local League organizations within California and are growing. Members of one level of organization are also members at the local, regional, state and national levels.
Membership is open to men and women. We recommend that you look up your local League and contact them about upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, services they offer, and their dues structure.
