Making Democracy Work

Make Democracy Work

Who are we? We are the League of Women Voters, an organization of women and men who want to make a difference in the political future of our country. We are a diverse, non-partisan, political group with a long-standing tradition of educating voters.

End of Year Fundraiser

It's that time of year when our mailboxes fill up with letters from our favorite nonprofits inviting us to make a donation.

LWV Oakland is no exception! As we look ahead to two elections in 2018, we're hoping our members and friends will be generous donors so we can comfortably produce short video Pros & Cons of local and regional ballot measures, publish our Oakland Easy Voter Guides, present candidate forums for the many local and regional contests, and offer Pros and Cons presentations to groups of Oakland voters.

Make a non-tax-deductible contribution with your credit card online.

Or write a check to LWVO Ed Fund to make a tax-deductible contribution, then mail it to LWVO, 436 14th Street, Suite 1213, Oakland CA 94612-2723.

Members, look for a letter we sent recently with its stamped return envelope already addressed to the League.
