New National Focus!!!

LWVUS  | Published on 8/9/2021

Following the success we saw in the 2020 election, I'm proud to announce the League's new programmatic focus: Women Power Democracy.

Over the past year, we've seen countless challenges to our democracy in the forms of mis- and disinformation, gerrymandering, and voter suppression.

Women Power Democracy is four-pronged approach to building trust in our elections, growing our electorate, creating fair voter access, and ensuring community districting reflects our population.

Its components are

  • Democracy Truth Project: Countering mis- and disinformation in our government and advancing public understanding of the democratic process;
  • Expand the Franchise: Increasing voter participation, with a focus on underrepresented populations and low-propensity voters;
  • Democracy Defense Fund: Protecting voting rights and advancing a more equitable democracy through advocacy and voter protection efforts; and 
  • People Powered Fair Maps™: Leading with advocacy, public education, and organizing to create transparent, people-powered electoral maps and eliminate gerrymandering during 2021 redistricting. 

This work will take shape through League activations, trainings, and workshops to support the public and position the League as a continued leader in these areas ahead of the midterm elections next year.

I can't wait to embark on this new chapter of advocacy with you.

In League,

Virginia Kase-Solomon
