League members work on a variety of issues over each program year, in addition to our voter registration and elections-related work. At our 2016 Annual Meeting in May, members met in small groups and discussed a variety of possible focus areas for our next year. These will be refined at the Board Retreat meeting in August, 2016. Our Program Year runs from September through May; our fiscal year begins on July 1st.
Major themes discussed included state funding for education; climate change; water rights/ storm water; agriculture; affordable housing; jobs development; local mental health; tax fairness, tax credits, income tax; diversity awareness; land development, growth management and more.
League always welcomes people who are interested in community issues and are willing to work on understanding and then taking action on them. We have a great history of impacting positive change through our advocacy efforts and our work on voter registration and voter rights. Come and join us!
