90th Anniversary Celebration
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.
Two Community Forums and a live broadcast on WQED.

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. This coming week, we are convening two forums where you and other citizens can share ideas and experiences with and learn from one another as you enjoy light refreshments.

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.
