Supreme Court Ruling on Charter Schools
On Friday, September 4, the Supreme Court ruled that Charter Schools are unconstitutional.  The League of Women Voters of WA was a party to that lawsuit and is gratified that the Supreme Court affirmed that Charter Schools are not common schools and therefore are not eligible to receive restricted common school funding from the state.

LWVWA's Gun Safety Toolkit

The online Gun Safety Toolkit is a collection of sound, fact-based resources to spark civil discussion and advocacy about gun safety in our communities. We encourage you to use this toolkit in forums, in your communications and as a resource guide, and to share the link with your members and others in the community. You can also follow both the League and the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility on Facebook to keep updated on the latest in gun safety legislation.

Toolbox Guidelines

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
