With your membership dues and donations, national and State LWV can continue to work on crucial issues such as opposing voter suppression, promoting voter protections, and getting money out of politics. The Oakland League depends on donations to allow us to engage with Oakland voters and to expand our education and advocacy work here in Oakland.
For example, the League undertook research on the effectiveness of citizen oversight bodies through a paid research scholar from the University of California Berkeley Goldman School of Public Policy. We have taken those findings to elected officials to propose reforms that promote government transparency. This is also an example of our year-round work and our investment in the next generation of leadership.
