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:
How can you can help with the Census? Find out more HERE.
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.

Message From the President
Oh my, what a change from a month ago!!!
I hope all of you are safe and well.
At the beginning of March, we canceled our
100th Birthday Celebration which was to be
held on March 29. This has been rescheduled
to June 14. But, in these uncertain times, we
are not sure that our world will return to enough normality, so stay tuned.
We postponed our Lunch with League for March 19 with hopes for holding a live event on April 16. As our shelter-in-place order continues until May 3, so let’s hope we can hold it in June.
We are planning to hold our first Zoom board meeting next week and we will discuss how to continue our mission in these new times. Shall we try to produce a “virtual” Lunch with League? How will we hold our Annual Meeting? Should we hold online discussions with our members?
Our world has changed and may never ... read more HERE
