Take Action through Advocacy
League advocacy or (taking) Action means participating in government. We study our League positions, confer, then submit and present testimony in government hearings. We publicize our support, concerns, and sometimes opposition to proposed legislation. You can volunteer to work on a particular League supported issue, such as gun safety or clean energy solutions.

Working Together to Influence Public Policy
The process used in formulating positions and in taking action at the grassroots level makes the League unique. It sets the League apart from other organizations. The fact that we are League members working locally, collaborating as a state and with the League of Women Voters of the United States, makes us a powerful force. See some of our LWV testimony here.
*Lobbying activities and voter services activities are kept completely separate. Voters’ Guides and other voter services materials and publications must not contain statements of League positions.
