What do League members do and how can I help?

League members have many different interests. Some like to work behind the scenes or simply provide financial support or respond to our calls for action. Some want to work on League issues that are important to them, like the environment or civics education. Others want to join our lobbying team or get involved in voter service activities.

If you are interested in Voters Service, or want to advocate for one of our issues or join our action team, contact us and we'll get your started. We want you on our team!

Who are the members?

Membership in the League of Women Voters, the most respected and effective grassroots organization in the country, is open to men and women of all ages.

Why should I join?

Through participation in League projects, you will:

  • contribute valuable service to the community
  • gain knowledge and experience through the study and discussion of timely and important topics
  • discover new interests, develop new skills and learn about crucial issues in your community
  • make professional contacts and develop lasting friendships as you meet others in League who share your interests

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.

What do I get?

You automatically become a member of LWV Rhode Island and LWV of the United States. You will receive their publications along with the newsletter from the Rhode Island League of Women Voters called RI Voter which is usually published 4 times each year . You will have the knowledge that you are adding your voice to a powerful force of members from all 50 states, Washington DC, the Virgin Islands, and Hong Kong.
