Although many think of the League of Women Voters as a resource during election season, our chapters are active all year, every year! Since the November election, our league and many others have been more active than ever in continuing to advocate for positions that we have taken. The League only advocates on issues after careful study and consensus.
Based on these positions, we’re working hard as advocates! Specifically, the League:
- Pounced on threats of an unnecessary and dangerous “investigation” into voting issues, earning extensive media coverage for our work.
- Has spoken out on the Executive Branch’s likely illegal and discriminatory immigration orders.
- Posed critical questions for the Senate to prioritize as they consider the new Supreme Court nominee.
- Continued to drive hundreds of calls and comments to Congress on the importance of preserving the Affordable Care Act.
