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.

Action Committee meeting notes are posted below for League members only. Remember to log in to view the notes. (The notes can also be viewed on the Members Only page, which can be accessed from the left navigation menu once you are logged in.)

Thanks to a great team of petition circulators and speakers, in 2019 we returned 60+ petitions with  more than 500 signatures. I set our League goal at 1,000 signatures. We have almost 3 more months and I think we can reach this number.

We helped qualify this initiative last year, but the Schools and Communities First coalition has made some changes that will make it even easier to get this passed on the November 2020 ballot. We are joining the LWVC and other local Leagues and coalition partners to gather signatures to re-file this improved initiative.
