The League of Women Voters of the District of Columbia is a citizens’ organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage DC citizens in the decisions that impact their lives.

Our mission is to encourage the informed and active participation of the people of DC in government. We are committed to increasing the understanding of major public policy issues and influencing public policy through education and advocacy. 

In the League, you can add your voice, along with over 150,000 League members and supporters across the country, in Making Democracy Work.
