Making Democracy Work

Make Democracy Work!

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. We influence public policy through education and advocacy. We invite men and women to join us!

Spring Greetings!


We have chosen the following three issues as priorities for action and advocacy for 2013-2014:

  • Social Safety Net in a Time of Economic Downturn

  • State of Criminal Justice in Contra Costa County (particularly in the light of the transfer of prisoners and responsibility from the state to county/local institutions and programs)

  • Educate members about tobacco use prevention and substance abuse measures in our area

Please let us know if you would like to participate in these priorities for advocacy and action.
