In honor of 95 years of Making Democracy Work®, LWVVUS staff members are sharing stories about their work with the League.
Catherine Collins, Development Associate
Years at LWVUS:
I care about the League’s work because:
We help to educate and engage voters around important political issues.
My favorite experience with the League has been:
It is not necessarily an experience, but I enjoy seeing the historical moments the League has been involved in captured in the memorabilia, such as the pen LBJ used to sign the act to establish the Federal Water and Pollution Control Administration, to the photographs of women marching in Washington, DC, on the office walls.
The most inspiring thing I’ve learned from the League and its members is:
Strength and determination.
In 2015 and beyond, I look forward to the League:
Continuing to build upon the number of people in this country registered to vote.
The League of Women Voters is celebrating 95 years of Making Democracy Work® at every level of government. In 1920, the League was founded as an outgrowth of the movement that secured women the right to vote to help new voters engage with their government. Today, the League empowers all voters to improve their local, state and national government. Learn more about the League of Women Voters and join our celebration!
