Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a day when we join with our family and friends to reflect on all that we are thankful for.
I, too, have been taking this time to think about all that I am thankful for this year – and one of the biggest things is you!
You, together with all of the League’s supporters, have made this an amazing year for the League of Women Voters and for our democracy.
Here are just a few of the things we were able to accomplish this year with your help:
- Provide 1.5 million people with the information they needed to vote in this year’s midterm elections through VOTE411.org;
- Defeat two dozen anti-voter laws in states across the country;
- Register tens of thousands of new voters;
- Hold hundreds of candidate debates around the country;
- Send over 50,000 letters to Congress in support of the Voting Rights Amendment Act; and
- Submit 40,000 comments (and counting) from our supporters to the Environmental Protection Agency in favor of regulations that limit carbon pollution.
None of this would have been possible without you. Thank you for helping the League. Together, we are Making Democracy Work®.
From all of us here at the League of Women Voters, Happy Thanksgiving!
