Mission Statement and Vision

Mission Statement

The League of Women Voters of Massachusetts (LWVMA), a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.


The LWVMA, in partnership with its local Leagues, will act to inspire good government and transparency so that government is responsive to the needs of its people. We will do this by providing infrastructure, information and tools to support local Leagues as they work to energize an informed citizenry to participate actively in the political process, and work to ensure transparency and good government.

In our mission statement, “nonpartisan political organization” means that LWVMA does not endorse a political party or candidate in elections, but it does advocate for issues that the organization has studied and taken a position on after consensus from our members.
