WASHINGTON — The League of Women Voters of the United States is pleased to announce a new partnership with DC-based lobbying firm, ACG Advocacy. The League has hired the firm to expand the 103-year-old voting rights organization’s advocacy work. For more than a century, the League has fought to protect the rights of voters and expand access for underrepresented communities through advocacy, litigation, education, partnerships, and grassroots efforts.
“We are excited about this new partnership working with an experienced firm like ACG to help us elevate our advocacy work to a new level,” said Virginia Kase Solomón, CEO of the League of Women Voters of the United States. “We know voters care about many issues from the environment to voting rights, and the League is committed to ensuring that every voter has a voice and is represented in our democracy.”
In addition to voting rights, the League of Women Voters advocates on numerous issues relating to democracy, such as campaign finance, women’s health, immigration rights, and DC Statehood. In addition, the League’s Making Democracy Work® initiative, launched in 2016, focuses on improving elections, redistricting, and abolishing the Electoral College.
“The history of the League’s advocacy goes back to our beginnings," said Jessica Jones Capparell, director of government affairs at the League of Women Voters of the United States. “Because our democracy is directly tied to how we live our lives and plan our futures, the League will continue to advocate for a more inclusive democracy where all Americans, regardless of gender, sex, race, ability, or party can see themselves represented in our government.”
Founded in 1994, ACG Advocacy firm has advised several clients, including Fortune Global 500 corporations, states, municipalities, and nonprofit organizations. The ACG team has been recognized for their work as a top lobbying firm in Washington and their expertise in finding innovative solutions for their clients.
"ACG is excited to work alongside the League to advance the goal of protecting and expanding voting rights for all Americans," said Julie Philp, partner for ACG Advocacy. “We are honored to work for public policy solutions that strengthen our democracy.”
The League of Women Voters is dedicated to ensuring that everyone has equal representation in our country and will continue to work with partners who share in our vision to empower voters and defend democracy.
