Impact on Issues is designed to help League leaders use LWVUS 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. 

The LWVUS public policy positions “in brief” listed on pages 1-4 reflect the program adopted by the 2016 Convention of the League of Women Voters of the United States.
