Issues & Priorities

2020 Priorities

The LWVCA defined our local priorities in our January program planning meeting. They are:

  • Reproductive health
  • Quality K-12 public education
  • Environmental protection
  • DEI - diversity, engagement, and inclusion
  • Observer Corps and open government
  • Responding to Action Alerts from the League at all levels (local, state and national)

How Does The League Select Issues for Emphasis?

In League, Program means the issues that we choose for concerted study, education and action at local, state and national levels. Program can include both education and action.

The Program Planning process is part of what makes the League a grassroots organization; each League member has the opportunity to influence the selection of issues where the local, state, and national League will focus time, talent and money.

Every two years, members of local Leagues engage in Program Planning. Based on the results of this, the Board of Directors makes recommendations to the biennial convention delegates about the program to be adopted for the coming two year period.
