Secure MI Vote is a petition drive to enact legislation that would take away Election Day voting options, make absentee voting less accessible and gut funding for election administration in Michigan. It threatens to derail decades of progress. In short, it would make voting harder for many people. The League of Women Voters of Grosse Pointe, along with other local Leagues and the League of Women Voters of Michigan are working hard to educate voters on the security of our elections. Read more

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy

The League of Women Voters, in both its values and practices, affirms its belief and commitment to diversity and inclusion. LWV recognizes that diverse perspectives are important and necessary for responsible and representative decision-making, and subscribes to the belief that diversity and inclusion are fundamental to the values it upholds. Inclusiveness enhances the organization’s ability to respond more effectively to changing conditions and needs, and therefore, LWV will in both principles and practices promote the inclusion in participation in any activity of LWV all persons whatever their gender, race, socio-economic status, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin or disability.
