100 years ago, on October 28-29, 1919, our founding members took the first step to incorporate and mobilize the League of Women Voters Minnesota. A copy of the original program is available, as a reminder of our ambitious beginning, and as tribute to the women who blazed the trail that led us to today. To see the program, click here.
Minnesota Senator Chuck Wiger interviews members of civic and governmental organizations in his senate district (43). In December, Sen. Wiger interviewed Florence Sprague, a Maplewood resident, about League. Here is a link to the interview on YouTube.
NONPARTISAN POLICY AND GUIDELINES FOR POLITICAL ACTIVITY
The purpose of the League of Women Voters is to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation of citizens in government. The nonpartisanship of LWV is the basis of our public credibility and must be carefully maintained. LWV does not support or oppose any political party or candidate. It is political in that it takes positions on selected governmental issues after member study and agreement.
