Social Change Project:
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion
The League is particularly focused on empowering what is commonly called the New American Majority: young people, especially those who do not attend college; people with limited incomes; communities of color; single women; and new citizens. We are committed to developing a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion plan and welcoming new volunteers, even those who do not want to become traditional members. As part of what the League calls “The Transformation,” we will encourage our own members and donors to hear stories of people in our community, and we will work with other organizations to help us overcome our lack of racial, economic, and social diversity.
Being a member of the League has given me an opportunity to make friends and learn from talented men and women of all ages who share their education and experience with others so together we can work to fulfill this country’s promise of government, by, and for the people.
