Current focus points

Legislative Priorities

LWVFL works to advocate for better Florida for all by drafting, supporting and opposing state legislation. Our grassroots membership determines specific legislative goals within various policy issues each year.

REGISTERING
RETURNING CITIZENS

Ending disenfranchisement and discrimination against people with convictions is a priority for the Florida League following the passage of 2018’s Amendment 4.

VOTER SERVICES

Much of LWVFL’s history stems from our work to register, empower and educate voters. We work endlessly to register new voters, host candidate forums and educate the public on various issues.

ENSURE THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO ABORTION IN FLORIDA

A coalition entitled “Floridians Protecting Freedom” has launched a citizen-led ballot initiative campaign to give women the right to seek abortions up to viability. Florida voters want women to have the chance to ensure that their personal medical decisions are theirs and theirs alone to make. The League of Women Voters of Florida Board of Directors has voted to support this citizen initiative effort.

The decision of whether or not to have an abortion belongs to Floridians, their families, and those they trust — this campaign is an opportunity to further enshrine those protections in our state constitution.

We're incredibly proud of our members who showed up in force at the rally to support Yes on 4 Florida this weekend!

League members from across our state joined together with hundreds of Floridians to support this vital citizen-led ballot initiative at Lake Eola. Amendment 4, officially titled the "Amendment to Limit Government Interference with Abortion," aims to protect Floridians' freedom to access abortion.

Without the ability to make reproductive decisions for one’s own body, women and those who can become pregnant cannot participate equally in our democracy.

Today, the Florida Supreme Court has granted final approval regarding the wording of a citizen-led ballot initiative entitled “Amendment to Limit Government Interference with Abortion.” This approval ensures that the initiative will be placed in front of Florida voters as Amendment 4 in the 2024 general election.

The amendment requires 60% of favorable support to pass. The League of Women Voters of Florida celebrates this approval and is committed to doing everything possible to see the initiative succeed. Simultaneously, the Court issued a ruling that undermines freedom to bodily autonomy by triggering a six-week abortion ban that will go into effect in the coming weeks.

WOHOO!! We need to keep politicians out of our medical decisions!

You betcha... We are not giving up on bodily autonomy. I know that there will be enough supporters of Amendment 4 to create constitutional protection of our rights. Just make sure you an your friends and families exercise this important right to vote this year!!

But, the state has a way of ignoring the will of the people.

Women should get Tubal Ligations and Hysterectomies if they don't want to have babies, NOT MURDER BABIES.
