LWVNJ Activist Training Program
Join Our Fall 2022 Sessions
The LWVNJ Activist Training Program is a program designed to equip members and volunteers with the knowledge and skills needed to carry out dynamic organizing strategies that can 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. Sample trainings have included: Introduction to the Legislative Process, Meeting with Decision-Makers, Using Twitter Storms for Advocacy, Effective Campaign Communications, and more!

Weekly Field Calls
These weekly field meetings are a space for League members to discuss key voting rights legislation of the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. This will be a space for Leagues to share their advocacy plans, discuss challenges and successes, and for LWVUS to learn how we can continue our support.

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.
