We Are the League of Women Voters of Kitsap

Learn the story of the League of Women Voters, a long, rich history that is intricately woven into the fabric of America. Our nation’s history is full of people who dreamed big and acted on their beliefs. Americans speak out, agitate for change, organize and stand up for what they believe in. In their souls, Americans are activists. And at the center of activism in the U.S. is the League of Women Voters.

Like our country, the League has changed with the times and met new challenges head on. At its’ core, the League of Women voters is about citizenship and the responsibilities that come with democracy. It’s not enough just to have rights. Being a citizen requires participation and the League continues to lead the way in voting rights, ethical government and environmental issues. 

Since it was founded on February 14, 1920, the League of Women Voters has been a nonpartisan, activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that citizens should play a critical role in advocacy. Times have changed, political administrations have come and gone, and League members cycled through the ranks, but we continue to work for the core values have made the League a trusted voice in American democracy. We still register voters, testify on voting rights issues, monitor government function and debate issues important to society.

Local Leagues at Work
by Sue Hughes

The LWV of Kitsap recently held a community education forum on the growing homelessness crisis in Kitsap and many other areas of the state. The objective was threefold: present the true face of homelessness, describe the several projects underway to provide transitional and permanent affordable housing and encourage participants to volunteer with agencies who serve the homeless.

LWV Kitsap’s forum, Where Are You Sleeping Tonight?, attracted a full house of people of all ages eager to learn about efforts to reduce homelessness in Kitsap County.
Great Success !!!
