OUR VISION

We have continued to engage discussion on the future of Berea, Richmond and Madison County in the areas of land use, growth, and economic development. In 2005 when all three local governments revised their comprehensive land use plans, LWV hosted several public meetings to encourage citizen input. Read the LWV's VISION STATEMENT for local government adopted at 2008 Annual Meeting.

What is LWV?

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization of women and men, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
We register voters and defend voting rights. We monitor government activities from city councils and school boards to state legislatures and the U.S. Congress. We educate citizens about their rights and responsibilities. We sponsor candidate forums and public issues forums. We study issues in order to arrive at member consensus. And we take action by lobbying, testifying, and educating legislators on issues we care about. As a nonpartisan body, the League takes action on issues. We do not support or oppose candidates or parties.
