Recognizing the importance of this historic moment, the board of the League of Women Voters of the United States has voted unanimously to support the Women’s March on Washington and the sister marches, including the one in New York City.
In response, we urge you to join in supporting our democratic form of government in two important and immediate ways:
1. March with the League of Women Voters at the Women’s March on Washington or NYC on January 21.
2. Join the League of Women Voters of Larchmont-Mamaroneck today: bring your ideas on what political issues to tackle.
Why March: The LWV is a non-partisan political organization that encourages active participation in government and seeks to influence public policy through education and advocacy. As such, we view the Women’s March as an opportunity to “make our voices heard on our priorities.”
“We march to reform money in politics. We march for health care. We march for the environment. These are our core issues and we want to ensure they are front and center.” LWVUS Board in a January 11 announcement to the membership.
Why Join: The LWV needs you and you need the LWV, if you care about your local and national government. Help us study the major issues of our time, come to consensus, and then advocate for what we agree are the right policies. In the past, we’ve fought for clean air and water, adequate educational funding, campaign reform and much more. Our ability to influence our legislative leaders is directly tied to our strength in numbers.
