We convene a number of forums, where each speaker has an equal opportunity to address the public and to answer their questions. These forums are about elected offices, ballot measures, legislation, social policy, and other community concerns. We produce education tools and training programs to encourage civic participation in these issues. Current priority issues include redistricting implementation and government reform; we also have information on health care, education, the state budget, climate change, water, transportation, and other issues.

Reviews for League of Women Voters of California Education Fund

Rating: 5 stars

The League of Women Voters of California is the best provider of nonpartisan educational information in California, hands down. They publish accessible educational materials (from the Easy Voter Guide to Smart Voter) and organize candidate forums. Trusted and respected because of the outstanding rigor of their work.

Voting in California is cumbersome, time-consuming and often confusing. I turn to the League of Women Voters of California to help me sort through the legalese to get to the real issues with clear, clarifying language that is unbiased and easy to understand. I am grateful for the work of the League and appreciate the Easy Voter Guide and other publications that support my efforts to be an engaged, responsible voter. That's why I'm a donor.

I'm getting ready for my local election this November and Smart Voter is about the only place I can find good local election information. Thank you!

I work as a high school teacher and administrator and use the League's nonpartisan resources for my students in social studies and civics every election. We especially love the Easy Voter Guides and I think the parents use them to make decisions on tough ballot measures! I am grateful to have trusted sources of information I can feel good about our students using. Thank you League!

The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund always has the best and clearest nonpartisan election information. Smart Voter and now Voter's Edge California make it easy to learn about my ballot online so I can make informed decisions, especially for local races and measures.

I shifted from general volunteer to board member because the work of LWVCEF is so exciting! The new Voters Edge website is exactly the kind of project that voters need to make informed decisions about candidates and issues. The League's profound commitment to nonpartisanship is like a breath of fresh air in politics. This is a group of people with strong and informed opinions who regularly put them aside to focus on what's best for democracy - I know that sounds corny but in the current political environment it's stunning.

This is an organization full of staff and volunteers who are deeply committed to honest, impartial, straight-forward information for voters. I've been volunteering on a committee for a few months now, and I'm so impressed by the dedication to democracy that drives these *incredibly* smart and talented women (and a few men). Democracy isn't just a concept to them - it's a vital activity, and they work really hard to carve out and defend voters' access to useful information that is free from corporate and partisan influence. The CaVotes.org website is a fantastic, high quality, easily accessible resource for voters in California. Possibly the most valuable resource the League offers during elections is their focus on local democracy, local issue information, and voter registration. They make being a well-informed voter much easier! Also, you know that when the League takes a position on something, it's completely trust-worthy, well-researched, and carefully thought out - you don't have to go looking for who funded their opinion.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

In addition to my role as a staff member, I'm also a major donor to the League of Women Voters of California Education Fund. With thousands of members and volunteers the League makes a real grassroots difference in people lives. Every dollar that I contribute helps register, inform, and engage more Californians in civic life. Democracy only works when everyone can fully participat--and my gifts to LWVCEF help make that happen.
