The League of Women Voters studies issues and, when sufficient consensus results, it adopts positions. These positions are traditionally grouped into four program areas: Representative Government, Natural Resources, Social Policy and (at the national level) International Relations. They form the basis for the League's advocacy in matters of public policy.
Impact on Issues includes the official LWVUS statements of position for each program area, briefly traces significant past actions and achievements, and indicates links among positions. It is updated following each biennial convention.
