The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, that has fought for more than ninety years to improve American systems of government and impact public policies through citizen education and advocacy.
The enduring vitality and resonance of the League as a trusted force for change and good government comes from its unique decentralized structure: a national organization with potent partners at the grassroots level: more than 810 state and local Leagues, plus Leagues in the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Hong Kong.
From its inception in 1920, the League of Women Voters has been a leading voice for change, strengthening the democratic system at every level of government. The League began as a "mighty political experiment" designed to help 20 million women carry out their new responsibilities as voters. Over time, the priorities of the League have changed in order to reflect the altering needs of society. The organization, however, has remained true to its basic purpose: to make democracy work for all citizens. The League of Women Voters makes a difference in the lives of citizens because of the energy and passion of thousands of members, committed to shaping better communities worldwide.
