February 14 is a moment to commemorate the birthday of the League of Women Voters with action, advocacy, and storytelling, as we build power for elections.
In 2022, we honored the 102-year legacy of our organization with a day of unified, pro-voter action as one League, together.
On Tuesday, February 8th at 4 pm ET we kicked off our 102nd birthday action with afriends and family friendbank. We used OutreachCircle to invite our networks to upcoming birthday actions and activities.
One League Together: Virtual Rally
We gathered as one League to celebrate our expansive history and our pro-voter future in this rally, featuring speakers from partner organizations like Black Voters Matter, Declaration for American Democracy, and the Workers Circle!
