Who Are the Members?

We are an inclusive group and we value and encourage membership that is diverse in its identities, ideas, and political persuasions. Membership in the League of Women Voters, the most respected and effective nonpartisan grassroots organization in the country, is open to all genders, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Our members make a visible difference by serving as community leaders using their experience to create positive, lasting change in our communities. League members come from all backgrounds. Members are legislators, educators, civil servants, retirees, students, parents, activists... the list continues.

Why Should I Join

Membership in the League of Women Voters of Kansas City/J/C/P gives you an opportunity to be part of NON-PARTISAN fellowship focused on the ISSUES, on creating a more educated and engaged electorate, and creating a more transparent government.

Through participation in League projects, you will:

  • Contribute valuable service to the community.

  • Make professional contacts and develop lasting friendships as you meet others in League who share a passion for good governance and action as a duty of citizenship.

How Much time does it take

It's up to you! Many members choose to support the League only with their annual dues. Your membership alone gives us the political influence needed to build a voice for citizens and a force for change. We cover a broad spectrum of issues and concerns; you may choose to become involved in one or more of them by actively participating in a group study, or listening to a panel of experts at a meeting or just reading about them in one of our publications.

New members are welcome to join committees, to request study, and to create new opportunities for the League membership to create action on issues. We welcome everyone with every level of interest. Familiarize yourself with our positions. (*Hint - You Should!)
