How Does The League Select Issues for Emphasis?

In League, Program means the issues that we choose for concerted study, education and action at local, state and national levels. Program can include both education and action.

The Program Planning process is part of what makes the League a grassroots organization; each League member has the opportunity to influence the selection of issues where the local, state, and national League will focus time, talent and money.

Every year, members of local Leagues engage in Program Planning. Based on the results of this, the Board of Directors makes recommendations to the national, state or regional level about the program to be adopted for the coming two year period at their biennial conventions, and to the local League membership for program items to be adopted at the annual business meeting.

Our Program Priority for 2020-21:

Given the impact of Covid-19 on our community, the League of Women Voters Diablo Valley will educate and advocate for legislative and policy action of local governing bodies to ensure secure and equitable social safety net programs consistent with League Positions.

Our issues for emphasis include, but are not limited to:

  • Health services
  • Affordable housing
  • Homelessness
  • Climate emergency
