WHY WE ARE LEAGUE MEMBERS!

“THE MOST IMPORTANT POLITICAL OFFICE IS THAT OF THE PRIVATE CITIZEN”
Justice Louis Brandeis

The League is wholeheartedly political and influences policy through advocacy. Though we mobilize people to create civic change, the League is strictly nonpartisan and neither supports nor opposes candidates for office. The League takes action on an issue when we have a position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause. These positions exist at the local, state, regional, and national levels of the League, and are always the result of thorough study and membership consensus. The League may choose to take action at any time as policy issues arise in the community. The League of Women Voters of San Francisco also typically takes positions on propositions considered by San Francisco voters during the standard election cycle.

The League has positions in three areas:
