Issue Studies

LWVSA membership votes during its annual meeting to determine which public policy issues to prioritize for education and advocacy efforts in the coming year, at times elevating a particular issue for extensive study. 

The League’s process for study has acquired a solid reputation for its in-depth and unbiased exploration, with members pursuing facts and evidence supporting all sides of an issue.  Members review pro and con materials, converse with experts, consult public officials, develop their own resources, and additionally reach out to the community through public meetings, surveys, and media coverage. 

Results of these extensive studies are presented to the membership for discussion and potential arrival at a consensus position, which can then serve as the basis for League advocacy.

In the spring of 2020, LWVSA began working on a study examining the issue of income inequality. Links to the final report and a list of quick facts from the Economic Inequity study are below.
