The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
"The League of Women Voters trains good citizens who have a sense of responsibility about what goes on in their locality, their state and their nation." - Eleanor Roosevelt
We don't go to hear a "speech"; the presentations are informal. There's likely to be some back and forth, also, between lunchers and speakers.
And yes, there's always something to learn. At the last meeting, on the County budget, it became clear how many small decisions have to be made along the way, out of the spotlight + ones that affect the final result but aren't the kind anyone takes a vote on. I guess they're procedural, but they can make a difference.
So try it out! Learn something new, have some interesting conversations, and then go your way. Wiser and well fed. --Diane Amussen
