LWV Diablo Valley Action Committee

LWV Diablo Valley Action Committee

League members take action on issues where we have studied the topic and have reached conclusions that are embodied in our positions. Our Action/Advocacy Committee meets monthly (see Calendar of Events). Recent activities have included advocacy for affordable housing proposals in several cities, support of extending the county healthcare plan to undocumented immigrants, and statements on the Concord Naval Weapons Station re-use plans. We have been advocating for an Independent Redistricting Commission in Martinez.

Notes from recent meetings can be found in the Members Only section.
