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

Had enough of gerrymandering? Voters should choose their legislators. Legislators should not choose their voters. You can help to create a fairer way of drawing Congressional and Legislative districts in Pennsylvania. LWV of Pennsylvania is leading Fair Districts PA. To learn more about gerrymandering at an informational event, visit the events page and scroll down the calendar to find an event near you. Events in western Pennsylvania are marked with a yellow dot.
