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.

Voter Education

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.

Mission & Principles

Our goal is to empower citizens to shape better communities worldwide. We believe in respect for individuals, the value of diversity and the empowerment of the grassroots, both within the League and in the broader community.
