The League of Women Voters bases all of its advocacy work on our positions on the issues. We hold positions at all levels of government - local, regional, and national.
Where our positions come from
Unlike many advocacy groups, we are a bottom-up, grassroots organization. Only through our members can we reach a position and only with those positions can we act. Our positions are approved by our members through a process of consensus.
The League of Women Voters
- acts on an issue only when we have an LWVDC or national position or are acting under League principles.
- never advocates in opposition to a League position.
- may use any LWVDC or other national position to advocate at the District level.
- may advocate using a League position at other government levels if authorized by national.
