Do you know how the League of Women Voters works to shape and direct state law and policy? Issues Groups are the basis for League lobbying. Groups lobby from a position on an issue and stay on top of changes in the issue of interest.
Are you interested in any of these issues? Join a group if you are committed to learning deeply and applying that knowledge to the 2021 General Assembly. Learn to contact state representatives with experienced League members.
League members are invited to join LWV-Virginia issue groups that meet on Zoom by selecting your interest(s) HERE. All meetings are virtual since these are state-wide groups.
