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.
We are a nonpartisan organization made up of women and men of all ages and backgrounds encouraging informed and active participation in government, working to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influencing public policy through education and advocacy.
The people who largely fund DC elections do not reflect the diversity of our city. Currently, the Council is considering a way to restore power to the electorate and help engage more people. Come learn more about how the Fair Elections Act of 2017 would empower DC residents who are now underrepresented among those who fund elections, in particular people of color and women.
A panel discussion on the issues of the prospect of ending the federalization of parole for DC Code offenders.
Please join us for a celebration of our work this year with League volunteers, members and allies. We will have time to chat and share sweet goodies and other tea-time nibbles. An rsvp is requested for this event.
