MAKING DEMOCRACY WORK

Empowering Voters, Defending Democracy.

I stand before you today to repudiate the ridiculous notion that the American people will not vote for qualified candidates simply because he is not white or because she is not a male.

EVENTS

The LWV Metro Des Moines regularly hosts events to inform our members and community on how best to defend our democracy. 

ISSUES & ADVOCACY

The LWV takes action on an issue only when we have a position addressing that particular issue. We believe members must study and come to consensus on an issue, in order to form a position.

We encourage you to study with us and see where we stand.

POLICY POSITIONS

The LWV has documents in which public policy positions have been taken on the local, state and national level. 

  •  The Local public policy can be found here.
     

  • The State public policy can be found here.
