One of the reasons for the League’s political effectiveness is its reputation for thorough study before taking a policy position.
The LWVK Guide to Positions is designed to help League leaders use LWVK public policy positions effectively at the state and local levels. In addition to the official statements of position for each program area, this guide briefly traces significant past actions and achievements, and indicates links among positions.
This listing summarizes the official full statements of position. In applying LWVK positions to local and regional issues, it is the responsibility of the appropriate League board – depending on the level of action – to determine whether member understanding and agreement exists and whether the action makes sense in terms of timing, need and effectiveness.
