Advocacy


The League of Women Voters advocates for public policy and social issues based on the non-partisan positions it has developed through study, discussion, and a formalized position adoption process.  Positions may be taken on issues at the local, state, and national levels. A major focus for the League is Making Democracy Work which means working to expand voter access, fighting voter suppression, ensuring fair redistricting, and limiting the influence of money in politics.

Advocacy takes many forms, including lobbying, tracking legislation and governmental issues, testifying and commenting on proposed legislation, writing letters to the editor, and initiating legal action.

Examples of Our Efforts

The LWVGT Advocacy Committee provides a focus and coordination for the Greater Tucson League’s advocacy activities and coordinates with the League of Women Voters of Arizona on these activities at the state level.

Each year, usually in November, the Committee hosts a Legislative Breakfast with state legislators from Pima County to discuss League positions on issues, legislators’ plans for the upcoming legislative session, and areas of mutual interest.  The Committee also seeks other opportunities for League members to meet with legislators and public officials from the Greater Tucson area throughout the year.

The Committee coordinates the Greater Tucson League’s participation in League Lobby Day at the Arizona Legislature which is held in February each year at the start of the legislative session.

The Committee also provides advocacy training for LWVGT members and the public. Example topics of past workshops include: 1) using the Request to Speak system at the Arizona State Legislature and 2) effective lobbying.
