In November, 1911 women finally gained the right to vote in California and the San Francisco Center was founded to promote voters education and women’s suffrage. Nine years later, the Center joined the National League of Women Voters. Since then, the League has dedicated itself to educating and empowering people of all communities to participate responsibly in government. We championed civil rights, reproductive freedom, compulsory education and equal opportunity for women, child labor laws and so much more. For over 100 years we have upheld a legacy of equality and patriotism.
By donating today, you can support this legacy.
Last year we continued to promote educated involvement in politics in San Francisco. We created a Pros and Cons Guide, organized a Speaker’s Bureau, and held countless community educational workshops regarding elections and voting. All of this work is done at the grassroots level by volunteers who continue the League’s legacy of non-partisan educational programs and advocacy.
While we strive for efficiency and conservation, we do require funds to maintain our organization. We rely on donations to pay for printing and publication of our voting materials, the daily costs of office upkeep, and for our only paid position, the Program Manager, who is needed to manage our programs and to ensure we are providing the best possible services to our community.
The League of Women Voters of San Francisco has a doubly impressive legacy. It not only carries forward over 100 years of commitment to non-partisan education and equality through its alliance to the League of Women Voters as a national organization, it also resides in one of the most political cities in the world. Support our legacy and the legacy of San Francisco today!
