Welcome to the LWV-AA

The LWV-Acton Area is a non-partisan, grassroots organization that supports and opposes issues, but not candidates or political parties.  Our charter is to protect voters, educate and engage voters, reform money in politics and defend the environment. 

The League is open to women and men over the age of 16 who want to make democracy work.  The League works at national, state and local levels to influence policy through civic education and advocacy.

Ongoing Events

Non-fiction Book Group: One of our most popular activities, Book Group meets monthly to discuss books on timely issues. All are welcome even if you didn’t get to read the current book yet. More information available under Our Work.

1st Tuesday: A chance for members to dial-in on the first Tuesday of the month at 10 a.m. to dig into whatever topics are hot and members want to discuss. We may not solve the problems of the day but we do get a chance to spout our opinions.

New 2nd Thursday: An evening version of 1st Tuesday at 7 p.m. allows members who aren’t available during the day to participate in the free-flowing discussions that so many members have enjoyed for years in the morning.
