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 have been active in the League of Women Voters at both the state and local level and no other activity I have been involved in has given me as many personal rewards. I get enormous satisfaction from helping others learn more about candidates and understand the issues on the ballot. I enjoy the research/writing and training involved in voter education.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Visiting many different types of community organizations to explain ballot measures and important issues on the ballot. It is always heartening to hear people tell me afterwards how much the League information helped them understand the issues and how it makes them feel confident about voting.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help publicize the nonpartisan nature of LVW materials and educational programs. The League is know for its positions on election issues that we take only after careful study and member consensus, but there is a whole side of the League of Women Voters take is strictly educational and does not support or oppose candidates or ballot measures.
