Our League in Action!

The League takes action on an issue or advocates for a cause when there is an existing League position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause.  Examples include: 

  • Publishing recommendations on a ballot measure,

  • Advocating for or against legislative action by a government agency,

  • Providing comment on policies and procedures that impact transparency, public engagement and/or the principles of democracy. 

The League never takes action or advocates on behalf of a candidate or political party.  


Action & Advocacy activities include:

  • Writing advocacy letters to decision-makers

  • Organizing public education events

  • Making direct contact with elected officials (i.e. email, phone, individual letters, etc.) by the Board on behalf of the League and/or by individual members prompted by “Time for Action” alerts

  • Issuing public statements via media, website, social media, etc.

  • Conducting a study in preparation for taking or updating a League position.
