League of Women Voters of Napa County
What We Do:
We advocate for and educate about important issues, often in partnership with other nonprofits and in coalitions. During election years, we hold nonpartisan bilingual candidate forums and pro/con programs on ballot propositions and measures. Volunteers register and educate voters, including high school/college students and seniors. Making Democracy Work.®
LWVNC recognizes the interrelationship of community issues. The California and US Leagues have developed policies through study and consensus. We advocate for governmental change on issues such as climate change, water quality (including healthy watersheds, groundwater, and marshlands), and affordable housing. We have hosted/cohosted programs on immigration, single-payer healthcare, watershed health, the electoral college, and women’s equality. We are involved with the 2020 census count, the Voter’s Choice Act, government financial transparency, and guidelines for initiatives and referenda.
Individuals, ad hoc groups, and other nonprofits help LWVNC in achieving both issue-related education and advocacy as well as advancing voter numbers and election participation.
