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 is a key part of the LWV mission. The League of Women Voters of Michigan (LWVMI) often takes 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 (such as testimony, letters, phone calls, and 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.

We encourage you to take a few minutes to read current Action Alerts effecting Michigan and the country.
