The League in ACTION!
League members are active in outreach and planning activities in a number of important areas.
The San Jose League is actively supporting public education on the importance of a full 2020 Census count. Our teams are busy working on outreach efforts to assure that every person is counted. Why do we need the 2020 Census? Learn more below:

Should the City of San Jose change its form of governance -- from the current Council-City Manager system to a "strong mayor" system? The League is looking at the impacts of this change and how it would affect our community.
We are actively supporting the upcoming Schools and Communities First Initiative and will be participating in public education programs over the next year.
The Natural Resources/Climate Change Committee continues to monitor progress around San Jose Clean Energy, noting the efforts to move more San Jose residents to elect "Total Green," for 100% carbon-free, and 100% renewable energy. Read more about our Climate Committee HERE.
Please consider working with us on these important issues. Contact us to learn more about our work HERE.
