Making Democracy Work

The League of Women Voters of Louisville (LWVL), founded on November 26, 1920, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Membership in the League is open to women and men of all ages. For more information, email us at or phone us at 502-895-5218. When you join LWVL, you also become a member of national, state and local leagues -- three levels of government and legislative activity.
