National Lobby Corps

Become a national League volunteer lobbyist. 

The LWVUS Lobby Corps Volunteers lobby select members of Congress on key League issues and communicate LWVUS positions to members of Congress. The work of Lobby Corps members is invaluable and increases the influence that the League has on Capitol Hill.

The Corps consists of between 20-25 League members drawn from the metropolitan area. It's a unique opportunity for league members in this area. Even as a DC resident, you can make a difference in League issues at the national level.  

What is involved?

Lobby Corps convenes once a month when Congress is in session for briefings on League legislative priorities.  Lobby Corps members receive assignments to lobby select members of Congress.  Following these Hill meetings, they report back on their conversations to LWVUS staff and state League presidents.
