"The League of Women Voters always seemed to me to epitomize women with a voice.
About ten years ago a group of us were car-pooling from an event honoring women leaders. We lamented the state of government in our own community. Two former League members inspired us to start a new League and do something pro-active about our concerns.
Our LWV unit has been behind many positive changes, including getting women to run for office and elected to serve! We are appreciated and looked to as change agents for the greater good."
