How can we create more fair elections?

This is an event we cosponsor with LWV San Diego coming up on Thursday. It's held at Tom Ham's restaurant on Harbor Island. Worth the drive. You can register and pay online at See the flyer for details.

Looking forward to hearing our LWV California Executive Director, Melissa Breach, share her knowledge on this important topic.

We Marched! What's Next?

From our LWVUS President:

On January 21st, millions of women and men gathered--in the streets of Washington, in cities and towns across the United States, and in countries around the world--to demand their voices be heard. 

The Women's March was a powerful, inspiring event--but even before the crowds had begun to disperse, the crucial question was asked: What next?

Because even the largest, most inspiring demonstration becomes an empty gesture if it is not followed by the day-to-day commitment and work required to accomplish real change.   

That's why we put together a list of CRITICAL actions you can take right now!

We built incredible momentum on that Saturday--now it's up to us to keep it going. Please, find out What's Next, right now.   


Chris Carson, LWVUS President
