The League's mission is to encourage the informed and active participation of citizens in government and to influence public policy through education and advocacy. We offer programs on local, state, or national issues that are of community interest or concern. During election season, we host Candidate & Issues Forums; inviting the public to hear and question candidates and review ballot measures. Every year, we invite the public to meet with elected officials in a fun "speed-dating" format. Our local League takes special interest in youth outreach offering a High School Civics Debate Scholarship Program and Voter Registration Program.
