Action Team

Dear Colleagues, As of fall 2018, we are concentrating all our energy on supporting the ballot measures that state and local league have decided to support based on our adopted policy positions and also a few key environmental issues in Berkeley and elsewhere.  We are currently without an Action Director. We will be reorganizing

Meetings of the Action and Program Teams are held at the LWVBAE Office, 2530 San Pablo, Berkeley. Check calendar.  They will be rescheduled after election.

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, the county, the greater bay area, the state, and 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.
