At our monthly Action Meeting, Monday, January 6, 1:00-3:30p, in addition to regular business, we will be hearing from Helen Hutchison, Action chair of LWV California, who will give us a brief overview of how the state League takes action and does advocacy.
Leagues at all levels take action. Our advocacy can include writing letters to media or legislators, holding press conferences, speaking at hearings and public meetings, adding our voice to a ballot measure campaign or sending action alerts to our members. Taking action is always based on current program positions and/or on League Principles. Positions are developed based on member study and consensus. We have many positions, and many opportunities to act, so how does the League of Women Voters of California board determine when to take action on state legislation and statewide ballot measures, and on which items?
Come learn about how action is taken. There will be plenty of time for questions.
