Information table at our 90th year celebration
The League of Women Voters of Greater Pittsburgh, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

The success of Democracy doesn't depend on a few persons who do great things, but on many persons who do small things faithfully.

-- Maud Wood Park, First LWVUS President
