Mission: The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund provides the public with information and educational services on elections and on current public policy issues. The League is known for its ability to make complex and controversial issues accessible in a balanced, evenhanded way. The League is an experienced trainer of community leaders and activists. A major focus of the League''s educational work is on voting and elections. The Leagues in communities throughout the state provide voters with factual, nonpartisan information on candidates and ballot issues, through voter guides, Web-based information, forums, town meetings and debates with a number of community, government and business partners.
Target demographics: all Californians
Geographic areas served: California
Programs: 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.
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 provides an invaluable resource for the community. Their programs are carefully thought out and meticulously executed.
Our local League often relies on the expertise of the LWVC Education Fund and its impressible members. Their knowledge, accessibility, and willingness to help make them a leader in their field. The organization repeatedly demonstrates its skills in collaboration, ability to foster community, and member accessibility.
