United We Sit, Divided We Fail
Each month LWVUS invites League members to convene in a virtual space to strengthen our community and solidarity! We want to continue to foster spaces for cross-learning and relationship building among leagues. Join LWVUS to hear directly from the League of Women Voters of Gunnison Valley from Colorado about how to encourage more civic discourse from your elected representatives.
The LWV of Gunnison Valley, Our United We Sit, Divided We Fail, a letter-writing campaign, is a simple approach that any League can use. This campaign has resulted in a Town Hall style meeting with state representatives that they have hosted. With a modest amount of leg work, each League can precisely tailor the sample letter to their state and national elected legislators. They hope that this non-partisan effort will encourage members to stay involved and active, compel legislators to seek a more civil approach to each other and legislation, and deliver the message that cooperation is the goal. Learn how straightforward this campaign can be when linked off your website. Hope to see you there.
