Action Team

Coordinator: action@lwvbae.org

As of July 1, 2017,  Board Members Preston Jordan and Jessica Powell will work together to manage the Action and Program Teams and the two teams will meet jointly. More information will be published as plans are developed.

Meetings of the Action and Program Teams are usually the fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm at the LWVBAE Office, 2530 San Pablo, Berkeley. Check calendar.

Info from the April 27 MEETING is listed and linked below the descriptions of our Priority Areas.

When we “take action’ in the League, we work for, campaign for, and lobby for League policy positions. LWVBAE Action addresses government activities, laws and regulations and proposed ballot measures in our three cities, in the county, in the greater bay area, in the state, and in the nation.

The Action Team brings together all the team chairs and all other League members who want to take action on an existing League policy position.  We do that by writing letters, facilitating a meeting, participating in debates, or writing OpEds. The Action Team reports what’s happening in the areas they are following and proposes specific actions to the Board.
