HOW WE WORK

League members work on a variety of issues over each program year, in addition to our voter registration and elections-related work. Our Program Year runs from September through May; our fiscal year begins on July 1st. At our August 2016 retreat, the Board decided to focus on election related work this fall.

After the holidays, League will begin a series of Public meetings focused on The Port of Olympia, Poverty and Injustice, Mental Health, and Thurston County Growth. We’re exploring developing an “Observer Corps” of League members who might attend various governmental meetings as observers. We envision observing Port of Olympia and Lacey, Olympia and Tumwater City Council meetings as members volunteer to be Observers.

The 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!
