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

THINK! Living with Guns in a Free Society.
The League of Women Voters of Greater Pittsburgh and WQED believe our region can move beyond polarized debate and towards productive collaboration. We are actively seeking to bring together and support engagement among people with diverse experience, backgrounds and perspectives. We have recently held two forums where citizens shared ideas and experiences and learned from one another. The forums are a part of a larger campaign that will include an online forum at and a live televised forum on November 17, 2016. Watch for information about the online forum here soon.
