Civil Liberties

The team monitors government activities at all levels for possible erosion of individual liberties as granted by the US Constitution. We strive to educate LWV members and the public about identified issues and encourage action based on League positions.

Our Recent Efforts And Accomplishments Include:

  • We have focused on the League’s position on immigration. We presented a forum on comprehensive immigration reform and a forum, “Xenophobia: A Threat to Civil Liberties.”
  • We studied the Right to Die issue and shared our study with League members.
  • In celebration of Constitutional Day the team distributed 1000 copies of a Constitution booklet.

The team remains open to address civil rights issues as they arise.
