Making Democracy Work

Because Democracy Is Not A Spectator Sport

The League of Women Voters of Detroit is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government. The League does not endorse candidates or political parties. It influences public policy through education and advocacy. We invite you to join us as we make democracy work in our communities.
