Making Democracy Work

Defenders of Democracy

The League of Women Voters is a nonprofit, nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. LWV influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Mission:
Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy

Vision: We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate.

League leaders recently held news conferences across the state to endorse Amendment 1 to clean up Missouri politics.

"The League of Women Voters is proud to endorse Amendment 1 because it is an opportunity to put Missourians before big donors, lobbyists and partisan games," says Louise Wilkerson, Secretary of LWV of Missouri. "Amendment 1 will increase fairness, integrity, transparency and accountability in Missouri's General Assembly."

Nancy Miller, Co-President of LWV of Metro St. Louis, stressed the initiative's redistricting reform. "The League's position that political and racial gerrymandering distort and undermine representative democracy."
