Celebrating 60 Years in the Bay Area.

The League of Women Voters of the Bay Area is an Inter-League Organization established in 1959 to address Bay Area regional issues.

We connect 20-Local Leagues in 9 Bay Area counties.

The League of Women Voters of the Bay Area invites you to

“A Community Dialogue on Regional Decisions”

Saturday, November 21, from 10:00 am to 12 pm

The League of Women Voters of the Bay Area is the regional spokes-organization for the 20 Member Leagues of the Bay Area on issues of regional impact such as transportation, housing, sustainability, and climate. Learn More! Local, regional and state experts will join this “community conversation,” and contribute thoughts about Plan Bay Area 2050, the Regional Housing Needs Allocation.  Your questions, insights and participation are an important part of this event as we discuss how regional decisions affect local communities.
