As our democracy faces increasing partisan divisions and increased attacks on voting rights, we need the strongest League of Women Voters ever. Strong Leagues enable us to produce strong protections for voters and help to keep our elections free, fair and accessible.
As a Ruth S. Shur Fellow who recently coached the Kansas Leagues at a statewide training, I witnessed firsthand the partnership between local, state and national Leagues through the Membership and Leadership Development (MLD) program. This program trains our leaders and supports them through a network of state and national volunteer coaches and has helped produce growing Leagues. Join me in spreading the MLD message by sharing this video with others in the League.
What does a thriving, growing League look like? What can it accomplish? Let’s take a closer look at what the Leagues in Kansas have recently accomplished.
A strong, visible League is vital to protecting our democracy. Join us in spreading the word about the impact of the MLD and stronger Leagues!
The partnership between national, state and local Leagues as fostered through the MLD program leverages one of our most unique strengths - real and passionate people working together to produce powerful and effective outcomes.
Thank you for Making Democracy Work!
P.S. Stay tuned – next week we’ll be making an exciting announcement about the future of the MLD program!
