Making Democracy Work

Calendar of Events

The League of Women Voters is proud of our history as a non-partisan, education-focused organization. We work hard to ensure that all of our sponsored events uphold these values by welcoming elected representatives, civic leaders, experts, and citizens from all background and affiliations to our programs and panels.

The League is and strives to remain non-partisan in all our activities, publications, and events. However, from time to time, we may cross-promote events related to our stated positions on issues even when the organization or speaker is not strictly non-partisan. This should not be taken as an endorsement from the League, but rather as encouragement for our members to become familiar with topics they might find interesting.

We believe that educating voters on a variety of topics, from a variety of perspectives, is an essential function of a healthy democracy.
