Women Power Democracy is the new programmatic focus of the League of Women Voters that will advance a stronger, more representative American democracy.

Since the 2020 election, we have seen new barriers to voting and continued attacks on our democracy that require a renewed organizational investment. ‘Women Power Democracy’ is a 4-pronged approach to tackle systemic challenges to voting rights through advocacy, litigation, and organizing. These League-led programs will build more trust in our elections, grow our electorate with equity, create fairness for voter access, and ensure community districting truly reflects our population.

We are excited to announce the launch of the League of Women Voters of New Jersey's new Activist Training Program! The Activist Training Program is designed to equip members and volunteers with the knowledge and skills they need to carry out dynamic organizing strategies that effectively influence public policy and the state of democracy in New Jersey.

The Activist Training Program will empower LWVNJ members and volunteers to hone their skills in three core skill areas: direct lobbying, grassroots advocacy, and voter outreach. A listing of upcoming trainings will be announced each month. A sample of trainings to be offered this Fall include: Introduction to the Legislative Process, Meeting with Decision-Makers, Using Twitter Storms for Advocacy, Effective Campaign Communications, and more!

"It's very important to use your voice and stand up for what you believe in. Voting is a way to be sure your voice is heard."
