Established in 1920 after winning the right to vote for women, the League of Women Voters today is one of the nation's most respected and most effective grassroots community-based organizations.

LEAGUE STATISTICS

The League of Women Voters has evolved from a mighty political experiment, designed to help 20 million newly enfranchised women vote in 1920, to what it is today: a unique, nonpartisan organization that is a recognized force in molding political leaders, shaping public policy, and promoting informed citizen participation at all levels of government.

Action Alerts

Advocacy⏤supporting, defending, or arguing for a specific cause or issue⏤ is at the core of the League's mission. LWV of Detroit looks to our state League (LWVMI) to take positions on legislative or citizen initiatives and other proposed governmental policy or regulatory decisions. If an initiative reaches a legislative committee, a voting body or other decision makers, the League may take action (testimony, letters, phone calls, public statements...). The lack of public action is not indicative of the numerous decisions to support or oppose an issue that the League makes on a regular basis.
