Today is our 91st anniversary and we’ve got a lot to be proud of! Help us celebrate by signing our birthday card.
Carrie Chapman Catt first proposed a League of Women Voters to work to end all discrimination against women. The League was found on Valentine's Day, 1920, six months before the ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote.
The heart of our mission—strengthening our democratic system and increasing the public's participation—has not diminished. Today, we are a grassroots organization of 140,000 supporters and more than 800 Leagues throughout all 50 states.
We are also celebrating the tremendous strides we’ve made for voting rights and other critical issues in America — thanks, in large part, to the work of supporters like you. As we recognize this important anniversary, I wanted to share some thoughts on a few of last year’s accomplishments. Click here to watch my special video message.
The League works daily to make sure we have an active citizenry that participates in our democracy … and your support is at the core of our work.
Join us in celebrating 91 years of making democracy work. Share your birthday wish with the League today.
Thank you again for your continued commitment.
