The League sent a letter to members of the U.S. House urging them to pass common sense solutions to the gun violence plaguing our nation.
With so many Leagues growing their membership nationwide last year, LWVUS wanted to find out how Leagues are finding success and share ideas of what activities are leading to such great growth. The first local League we interviewed is the LWV of Marion & Polk Counties, Oregon.
This guidance is provided to you by the Membership and Leadership Development (MLD) program. Through the MLD program, the League is becoming more effective and more powerful in communities throughout the nation. The MLD program is funded by the Fund for Local League Growth.
We are looking forward to LWVUS Council 2013! We are excited to share a weekend of great discussions, trainings and idea sharing!
Council Registration will begin on Friday, June 14, 2013 and conclude with lunch on Monday, June 17, 2013. Below, you will find a PDF version of the tentative schedule of events for the whole weekend.
The League submitted comments that urge the Department of Health and Human Services to develop the application for entrance into the Exchange and Insurance Affordability Programs be compliant with the National Voter Registration Act.
On behalf of the LWVUS, we had a delegation of 19 attending the Commission at UN headquarters. We also organized a parallel event--Implementing Laws Preventing Violence against Women & Girls – Successfully, held March 5.
