Stories from Around the State

Yesterday LWV of Pennslyvania filed a petition to join Pennsylvania's Attorney General lawsuit against state Senate Republicans’ attempt to obtain private information about registered voters.

“While today’s decision is deeply disappointing for the LGBTQIA+ community, it is significant that the Court did not create a broad license to discriminate against same-sex couple’s ability to adopt."

In the past year, The League signed on to numerous amicus briefs to defend the LGBTQ+ community from the wave of attacks on their rights. Many of these cases could set a precedent for discrimination against both LGBTQ+ and other marginized groups.

Celina Stewart spoke with The 19th about voting rights bills and priorities in statehouses across the country.

A federal district court judge dismissed a lawsuit brought by President Trump’s reelection campaign against Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar and seven counties.

LWV of Pennsylvania and partners filed an amicus brief in Hamm v. Boockvar, a case that challenges the state’s practice of notifying voters whose ballots have signature errors and allowing them to cast a provisional ballot.
