In honor of 95 years of Making Democracy Work ®, LWVVUS staff members are sharing stories about their work with the League.
Stephanie Drahan, Senior New Media Manager
Years at LWVUS:
I care about the League’s work because:
Without all eligible citizens registering and turning out to vote, our government is democratic in name only. Therefore, I am proud to commit my work to helping Americans of all stripes register and be heard in order to influence our political process.
My favorite experience with the League has been:
Attending the League's national Convention. Not only is it great to meet with members in person, it’s also inspiring to see long-held League policies and procedures in action. Talk about Making Democracy Work®!
The most inspiring thing I’ve learned from the League and its members is:
Passion and commitment. There is no offseason when it comes to elections work!
In 2015 and beyond, I look forward to the League:
Continuing to work to engage underrepresented and underserved communities and to engage all eligible citizens in our political process.
The League of Women Voters is celebrating 95 years of Making Democracy Work® at every level of government. In 1920, the League was founded as an outgrowth of the movement that secured women the right to vote to help new voters engage with their government. Today, the League empowers all voters to improve their local, state and national government. Learn more about the League of Women Voters and join our celebration!
