From the Story Bank: Why I Joined the League

I joined the League of Women Voters of San Francisco in the summer of 2014. After being out of law school for a few years I was missing the civic extracurricular activities I used to be engaged in through school. I started looking into San Francisco commissions and committees with vacancies that needed support and then one of my mentors, a past President of the League of Women Voters of San Francisco, recommended the organization and told me about the League’s work with the Sunshine Ordinance Taskforce.  I had used resources created by the League to inform myself before past elections and knew membership in the League would be a great way to start giving back to my community. I have since been selected for the League’s Board of Directors as a Communications Committee co-chair and I have started to shadow the chair person of the Sunshine Ordinance Taskforce, a League member, to transition into her seat after her term. I am very excited about all of the opportunities I have gained to give back to the City of San Francisco.
