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.
