Love the League!

The year-long celebration marking the 95th anniversary of the founding of the League of Women Voters of the United States culminates on February 14, the day of the League’s founding. We have selected this date to stage a non-event for those who Love the League, giving members and the community the option of NOT attending an event.

So when you receive your Love the League invitation in the mail, be glad that you do not have to brave the winter cold to show your love! Instead, donate to support the League’s efforts to Make Democracy Work.

Wish the League of Women Voters a Happy Birthday with your continued support and encouragement.


 

95 Years Making Democracy Work

 In February the League of Women Voters kicked off a year-long celebration marking the organization’s 95th anniversary. The League of Women Voters of Tyler/Smith County joins the nearly 800 fellow local and state chapters in honoring this milestone.

“Ninety-five years after the League’s founding, members of the League in Tyler are proud of the great progress it has made in Making Democracy Work ,” says president Mary Claire Rowe. “The League in Tyler has involved thousands of voters in electing government decision makers for our city and county governments and in holding them accountable for their actions.”

Today's barriers to the right to vote certainly look different than they did when the League was founded, but they remain threats to voter participation here all the same. Our efforts to take on discrimination and improve our government in our democracy continue today.

As we mark the League’s 95th anniversary, and see our 100th birthday quickly approaching, we celebrate our many accomplishments. League members throughout East Texas are keeping our eyes and our energies firmly on the future and the actions we will be undertaking to realize our goal: A better East Texas and a better America.
