The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.
Voters Service/Citizen Education: We present unbiased, nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.
Action/Advocacy: Our actions and advocacy are also nonpartisan, but, after study, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.
The League of Women Voters, a membership organization, conducts action and advocacy and is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation. To conduct our voter service and citizen education activities, we use funds from the Florence Ryan Education Fund, which is a 501(c)(3) corporation, a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to:
Building citizen participation in the democratic process.
Studying key community issues at all government levels in an unbiased manner.
Enabling people to seek positive solutions to public policy issues through education and conflict management.
