Making Democracy Work

President's Message

Kern County LWV

"All across America, Leagues on the National, State and local levels have been steadfast, diligent and active in ensuring that the voice of the people and their rights are protected. Through advocacy and education, fellow members are working hard to protect democracy. Although many victories have been won, there is still much work to be done and we need you to join us and participate in the cause. Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and do the education and organizing work to safeguard democracy? Or maybe you're looking for a way to stay up to date on the issues and possibly take online action? If you answered yes to either of the above questions, we WELCOME YOU! Membership with the League of Women Voters is open to men and women, citizens and noncitizens of all ages. By becoming a member at the local, state or national level you will:

  • have a community to rely on
  • have the opportunity to influence law makers
  • foster dialogue on issues you care about
  • defend civil rights and human rights
  • ensure ALL votes are counted and ALL voices are heard
