Amherst League of Women Voters

A Voice for Citizens, a Force for Change


The Citizen Lobbyist

The League of Women Voters has played a key role in influencing national, state, and local government policy since the League’s founding in 1920.
Here in Massachusetts, the state League advocates for our legislative priorities on Beacon Hill. As a grassroots organization, we depend on our members to act as citizen lobbyists to make our voice heard on important issues of public policy.

Fort River School Library Choices

The librarians at Fort River School have created a list of books to order with a donation from Amherst League of Women Voters, a return for the use of their school gymnasium last summer for our book sale. The books, of various genres and formats, can be used with various age groups and readers to talk about voting rights, civic change processes, and empowering all people to participate in government works.
