Empowering Voters – Defending Democracy
Since its founding in 1920, the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts has been a respected and trusted voice for citizen participation in our democracy.
With 45 local Leagues throughout the state and over 3,000 members, LVWMA has been at the forefront of efforts to empower and educate Massachusetts voters and effect change on a wide range of issues, including election laws and campaign finance, natural resources and the environment, women’s health, children’s issues, state budget and finances, public education, and public safety.
For almost one hundred years, the League has led the way, working to ensure that all citizens actively engage in making democracy work. We are women and men making a difference in the political future of our communities, state, and country.
Massachusetts League activities are coordinated by two distinct but complementary organizations:
- The League of Women Voters of Massachusetts is the political advocacy and membership organization.
- The League of Women Voters of Massachusetts Citizen Education Fund is the citizen education and voter service organization.
