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. 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. We are sometimes asked if the League of Women Voters remains relevant – and find it very telling. Anyone who questions the relevance of the LWV in 2017 simply does not know enough about the League of Women Voters. Yes, we are relevant – perhaps more now than any time since our founding. 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).
- 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.
