In honor of 95 years of Making Democracy Work ®, LWVVUS staff members are sharing stories about their work with the League.
Rose Simmons, Director of Direct Marketing
Years at LWVUS:
I care about the League’s work because:
It’s exciting to see a person’s life enhanced because they became educated about an issue that impacted them personally or was able to make informed decisions at the polls because the League provided them with the information they needed.
My favorite experience with the League has been:
I really enjoy raising money for an organization that I believe in and actually see the impact of its mission. The League is a critical organization when it comes to helping the average citizen get connected or excited about the importance of voting.
The most inspiring thing I’ve learned from the League and its members is:
Most members are go-getters, and I love hearing the stories from random people I meet who share stories about their mother or grandmother’s involvement with the League when they find out I work for this organization.
In 2015 and beyond, I look forward to the League:
Reaching its 100th year anniversary in 2020!
