The League's Mission
Who we are
The League of Women Voters of the United States encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate. We believe in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.
Since 1920 we have been an activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that voters should play a critical role in democracy.
