LWVCO’s advocacy in the legislature is spearheaded by the Legislative Action Committee (LAC) and Staff Lobbyist, with League members across the state participating in Action Alerts.

Led by Deb Gard, the Legislative Action Chair, and Staff Lobbyist Andrea Wilkins, the over 25 volunteer lobbyists of the LAC analyze legislation and decide whether to support, oppose, or watch it, based on League positions.

Advocacy includes:

  • testifying in legislative committee hearings
  • writing letters and emails to Representatives, Senators, the Governor, and the media
  • encouraging League members to contact their legislators and local media
  • participating in commissions and coalitions
  • holding an annual Legislative Conference for League members and guests
  • publishing the Legislative Letter every other week during session
