LWVMA FALL APPEAL

By supporting the LWVMA Fall Appeal, you will sustain the essential work of LWVMA and also earn money for Wellesley's League - 10-15% of any contribution received by October 13. And donors to Fall Appeal will not be called for Phonathon.

These times demand renewed commitment to democratic principles and activism. With your support, LWVMA is leading the way on election reform, climate change, immigration, and criminal justice reform. And our Education Fund is also nourishing grassroots democracy by registering voters, organizing candidate debates, publishing voters' guides, and holding issues forums. But even with a network of thousands of League citizen activists in our state, our movement requires sufficient funding to succeed. Membership dues do not cover all of our expenses, and we rely on our supporters to help close the gap. See how our resources were spent in 2016-2017 and donate now!
