From the Story Bank: Why I Joined the League

I joined the League of Women Voters in the summer of 2014 at the recommendation of a college friend. She was involved with the board and thought it would be a good way for me to get to know San Francisco, since I had just moved to the city. When I joined, I had never worked with voting advocacy specifically, so I was a little intimidated. Looking back, my lack of expertise made the League’s work and mission a great fit for me. I could intimately understand what it felt like for the public to try and figure out a confusing election because that was exactly what I was doing! I’ve started as a co-chair of the Membership Committee, and it’s been very rewarding getting to know new and experienced members and hear their stories. I have learned so much since I became involved in the League, and I look forward to participating for many years to come!
