Positions and Letters


After careful study, the League does take positions on some critical issues (but never candidates.) We advocate for measures that help our communities and protect our democracy.

The League of Women Voters takes a stand on issues and voices the opinion of thousands of its Bay Area members. Over the years we have addressed, plan bay area, transportation issues, health and welfare concerns, climate change as well as other socio-economic topics.
