Welcome to the League of Women Voters of Greater Verde Valley. And welcome to 2018, "The Year of the Empowered Voter!"
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization dedicated to public service in the field of government. It is a national organization -- open to both men and women -- whose purpose is to encourage political responsibility through informed and active participation in government. The League influences public policy through education and advocacy. The League never supports or opposes political parties or candidates for elective offices.
Join us on Thursday, March 8th, 6:00-7:30pm at Yavapai College in Sedona (4215 Arts Village Drive) for our next "Philosophy and Politics" presentation. League member Andrea Christelle and Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap will connect the fundamentals of economics with the movement to amend Citizens' United. Don't miss it!
And coming up on March 19th:
Our local league was formed in Sedona in 1988, expanded to include the Village of Oak Creek in 1990, and later expanded its scope and became the League of Women Voters of Sedona-Verde Valley in 1999. Just this year, we again changed our name -- to the League of Women Voters Greater Verde Valley. This name better reflects our regional focus throughout the Verde Valley.
We engage in voter service, citizen education, and political action on selected issues. We encourage the public to go to the polls with the best information available. We present forums where candidates can answer voters' questions directly and state their positions. We also present issue forums so that the public will have the information they need to decide how to vote.
