Making Democracy Work

Action and Advocacy

We are truly a grassroots organization...

  • Fill out the 2020 U.S. Census. We want to ensure that Rhode Island continues to receive the federal funding it deserves, and we keep two U.S. House Representatives. More
  • Register to vote if you have yet to do so at Vote 411 or at R.I. Secretary of State. More
  • Get the latest updates on R.I.'s Presidential primary and learn more about voting-by-mail at R.I. Board of Elections. More
  • Support the League's People Powered Fair Maps campaign and ensure that R.I. puts the power of drawing districts in the hands of ordinary Rhode Islanders and not legislators. Sign a petition and show your support for proposed amendments to the R.I. Constitution to create an independent redistricting commission at Redraw RI. More
  • Read the House or Senate bills that would pave the way for an independent redistricting commission in Rhode Island. More

The Legislative year in Rhode Island begins in January. Each year, the League chooses certain issues of focus for the year. However, the League continues to follow other issues related to the League positions and principles and will act on a non-priority issue if a situation arises.

If you are interested in an issue that is not listed on the priority list, contact the LWVRI advocacy committee The committee is always looking for members who have a particular interest and may be interested in following that issue locally, statewide, or nationwide.
