A new publication from the League of Women Voters Education Fund, "From Theory to Practice: A Grassroots Education Campaign," shares lessons learned by the state and local Leagues in Kansas and South Carolina that participated in "Safeguarding Democracy: Quest for a More Diverse Judiciary" from 2009-2012. The publication is intended as a resource for Leagues and partner organizations that seek guidance for the implementation of successful grassroots education campaigns.

“From Theory to Practice” is an in-depth look at the implementation of grassroots education campaigns, covering both general strategy and its application on an individual basis. Using two case studies drawn from the experiences of the Leagues in Kansas and South Carolina, “From Theory to Practice” shares the nuts and bolts that powered the campaigns—what worked, what didn’t work, and the path to goals that were reached.

The League of Women Voters of Kansas and the state’s eight local Leagues participated in “Quest for a More Diverse Judiciary” from 2009-2011. The League of Women Voters of South Carolina and the state’s eleven local Leagues participated in “Quest for a More Diverse Judiciary” from 2010-2012.
