Making Democracy Work

Action and Advocacy

Education

We are nonpartisan, but, after study, we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.

Local Advocacy

Members of the League of Women Voters of Los Alamos observe public meetings of interest to the League, including meetings of the Los Alamos County Council as well as some meetings of various boards and commissions and of the board of the Los Alamos Public Schools.

We conduct studies of local issues as well as participating in studies of state and national issues. These studies may lead to new or revised positions that will form the basis for future advocacy.

Based on its existing positions, the League of Women Voters of Los Alamos continues to support the development of affordable housing in Los Alamos County and policies that will promote the long-term welfare and sustainability of our community, including water conservation, renewable energy, and a public transportation system.

The League of Women Voters of Los Alamos, of New Mexico and of the United States are membership organizations, organized as nonprofit 501(c)(4) corporation. Because the League engages in issue advocacy, donations to the League of Women Voters of Los Alamos are not tax-deductible, unlike donations to our Education Fund.
