| S.PetersonThe League is one organization with three levels. Remember that you have people resources -- from volunteer colleagues such as yourself in other local Leagues to your state League and your LWVUS Board Liaisons. Sharing ideas and supporting each other between levels of the League is an important benefit of belonging to the League! Leadership in the League can be easy and fun! This publication created by the LWVUS Streamlining Committee composed of LWVUS Board Members and Staff will help you make it so.
Includes the official statements of position for each program area, briefly traces significant past actions and achievements, and indicates links among positions. The LWVUS public policy positions reflect the 2010-2012 program adopted by the 2010 convention of the League of Women Voters of the United States; the "positions in brief" listed there summarize the official statements of position included in this guide. Updated following biennial convention.
Citizens Building Communities is designed to help users understand some of the basics and guide them to resources so that they can foster dialogues at their community level.
