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.
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 depend on the League for unbiased, well researched and well thought out information. My aunt was very active in the League when I was young so as an adult I started reading their stands and they make so much sense. I appreciate the help in making educated choices. Now I've joined, but I haven't gotten to the point of being active yet. I would enjoy working on research and discussion if I had time.
