The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging the informed and active participation of citizens in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
We need to have faith in each other. We need to truly listen to how others think and feel, realizing that life often involves hard choices, sometimes between what is bad and what is worse. We need to reject the notion that those who disagree with our view are somehow not as good, smart or worthy. Nothing gets accomplished when half of our people are shamed into angry silence.
We need to have faith in our institutions - not blind faith - faith that the structures that undergird our society work as intended, and that problems within them are correctible with research, persistent effort and often, compromise.
Let's get to work.
Jan Wagner, President, LWVNOC
