League of Women Voters Teaneck!
Are you interested in public policy issues? Do you want to help others be informed? Want to meet others who have these interests, too?
Come and join us!
We have been in the USA since Feb. 14, 1920, the year the 19th Amendment was passed, and are the proud descendants of the suffragists.
The LWV-US was founded in 1919 as a partner to the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) and designed to be a non-partisan organization. The League replaced NAWSA after August 26,1920, when the Nineteenth Amendment was passed, which prohibited gender-based discrimination in voting by federal and state agencies.
The LWV-NJ was founded in Newark in April 1920.
The LWV Teaneck was founded in 1952.
Men and women are welcome to join in support of the League's mission, which is to encourage informed and active participation in government, to work to increase understanding of major public policy issues and to influence public policy through education and advocacy.
LWV Teaneck’s members organize and run:
· Candidate Forums for the Board of Education and Town Council elections
· Voter Registration Drives,
· Women’s History discussions
· Information sessions on LWV studies
