Coalition Partners

The LWVWA participates in coalitions with other groups that share common causes and interests. This allows for increased coordination and effectiveness in dealing with legislators. In general, we share information that our coalition partners provide directly or through social media so long as neither our nonpartisan policy nor our positions are compromised.

Views expressed by non-League partners are not necessarily those of the League; these links are provided as a service to visitors.
