Confronting Racism

Do not accept what is; confront it and move toward what should be. 

This page will present examples of what League and other like-minded organizations are doing to move toward what should be.


  • During the 2018 Convention in Chicago, the League of Women Voters-US held several workshops to introduce their new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy:  LWV is an organization fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in principle and in practice.


A recent article in YES! Magazine provides insights into talking about race. Read it here.


  • The Association for Women in Science (AWIS), one of the organizations LWV partnered with during the March for Science, was recently a participant in the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s HBCU Brain Trust Town Hall. This event featured a panel of black female Fortune 500 execs. With historically black colleges & universities graduating 47% of African American engineers, HBCUs are the key to a more diverse STEM field.
