What We Do
Action & Advocacy
We take action on an issue or advocate for a cause when there is an existing League position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause.
We make voting easier by preparing and distributing useful publications. Publications are made available to the public in our libraries, community centers and many other sites. Check out VOTE411 our easy to use online 1-stop shop voters' guide.
We organize Candidate Forums prior to elections to give voters opportunities to learn more about the candidates. We also organize issue forums to dive into complex issues like redistricting and voting rights for fact-based discussions and be better informed citizens in our democracy.
