Nancy Brumback, chair of the Massachusetts League Legislative Action Committee, discusses how to lobby your legislative representatives.

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.
