Important Messages from the LWVAZ
Message from the LWVAZ President,
Welcome to our website. Members of the League of Women Voters of Arizona are women and men living in communities across the state. The members engage in hands-on work to safeguard democracy and improve our communities. The LWV is citizen-powered democracy in action. We not only promote the values of democracy, we embody them.
The League is the original and preeminent grassroots citizens network, directed by the consensus of our members and committed to engaging citizens in our democracy so that it works for all Americans. Strictly nonpartisan, the League is at the same time wholeheartedly political and works to influence policy through advocacy.
On February 14, 2014. the League celebrated the 94th birthday of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the League of Women Voters.
Since our founding in 1920, promoting the right of every citizen to vote has been a principle of the League. The state and local Leagues sponsor debates and forums to educate voters about where candidates stand on important issues. We register voters, offer them information about issues and promote voter turnout.
The state League has championed the Clean Elections Act and the Independent Redistricting Commission. In 2011, the new Redistricting Commission was chosen and they drew the new federal and state districts which were used for the 2012 election.
The League does not endorse political parties or candidates, but does have a member consensus on issues. Members lobby state legislators and Members of Congress on certain issues.
Please explore the websites for the LWVUS, LWVAZ and local Leagues to find out what is happening in Arizona. Please join us in our efforts to make democracy work.
