Making Democracy Work

LWV Chicago Where We Stand

The Organization of the League of Women Voters parallels that of government with national, state, county and local bodies. Leagues at each level adopt a program. All programs are based on the Principles, which are "concepts of government" adopted by the membership at the national level.

The Chicago LWV Program is made up of governmental issues chosen by consensus of the membership and is published in Where We Stand. The entire Program is completely reviewed each biennium.

Topics included are Cable TV, Chicago Government, Chicago Public Library, Education, Handguns, Housing and Land Use.
