Defending California's Democracy


LWVC President Jennifer Waggoner has the following update:


This year alone, 19 out of 26 bills we supported — from improving campaign disclosure to fracking regulations to voting rights — will be California law.


You can join us in defending our democracy right now by making your year-end gift to the League of Women Voters of California.


How are we defending democracy? We changed the rules — 19 of them:

  • We advocated at the state and grassroots level to support bills which prevent "dark money" contributions to proposition campaigns and streamline the disclosure process.
  • For the implementation of the Affordable Care At, we worked with local Leagues across California to educate the public about health care and Covered California.
  • In our environmental work, we successfully convinced lawmakers to include the most significant disclosure requirements in the country for fracking.

Make your contribution today to help us educate, train, and empower more Californians to be effective advocates for our democracy.
