Right to Vote for All Strong Public Schools Transparency in Gov't.Dear League member in Arizona, Ninety-seven years ago, in 1920, women were given the right to vote – and the League of Women Voters was formed. When you became a member of the League of Women Voters you became a part of a local, state and national organization. THANK YOU for your continued support of the League of Women Voters of Arizona’s education and advocacy work. We continue to need your support for us to remain an essential voice of democracy. The League of Women Voters is even more relevant today in these polarized political times. Members tell us they want an organization that can provide trusted information and ways to be engaged in our government and our communities. Our democracy depends on our civic engagement. There are 5 League chapters in Arizona and together we form the League of Women Voters in Arizona along with the state organization which pursues statewide activities. And, we are evolving! To keep up with the complex issues that impact our government and those it serves, your support for the League in Arizona is needed in our efforts to:
- Provide education in the form of community forums, printed materials, and social networking platforms (e.g. the successful Voters' Rights Summit we held in January 2017).
- Host our Legislative Lobby Day on February 7th and pursue advocacy activities that affect election reform, education funding, equal rights for women, and more.
- Participate in and host League member trainings and leadership development at Convention and Council, both statewide and nationally.
