    Statewide Advocacy

    The League of Women Voters works to shape and direct state law and policy. Issues Groups are the basis for League lobbying. Groups study an issue and build a position on it, then lobby from that position to stay on top of changes in the topic. Here are some policy positions from the state-wide League of Women Voters of Virginia

    Are you interested in any of these issues? Join the group and commit to a deep learning dive into the Virginia General Assembly. Learn to contact state representatives with experienced League members.
