Advocacy & Action

While the LWV is strictly non-partisan, we do advocate on issues after in-depth study and consensus through the membership. The League empowers ordinary citizens to advocate for improving our communities. Our issues are grounded in making democracy work for all citizens.

                                                



Say YES to Second Chances

The League of Women Voters has joined in a partnership with the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC) and others in a state-wide campaign to put an amendment on the ballot that would restore voting rights to those convicted of a felony upon completion of all terms of their sentences including parole or probation. The amendment would not restore voting rights for persons convicted of murder or a felony sex offense. The League is taking a leading role in obtaining the signatures needed to put the amendment on the ballot. Petitions can be downloaded here.

Signed petitions should be mailed to the Florida Rights Restoration Commission at Floridians for a Fair Democracy, Inc., 3000 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd., Suite 503, Clearwater Florida 33759.

LWV Policy Positions

Study and Action is the League of Women Voters of Florida’s guide to public policy positions. Updated and published every two years, Study and Action provides information about the League’s program and advocacy positions on issues facing Florida and the United States as a whole, including government, education, justice, social policy, sustainability and natural resources. Every member of the League is encouraged to participate in the process of “study and action” in its entirety, from the adoption of a study, through the achievement of a consensus, to its ultimate conclusion with action. Impact on Issues includes the LWVUS official statements of positions on issues and briefly traces significant past actions and achievements.
