The League of Women Voters of Florida
For 100+ years, we have been a nonpartisan, activist, grassroots organization that believes voters should play a critical role in democracy.
Empowering voters. Defending democracy.
We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate.
We believe in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to the organization’s current and future success in engaging all individuals, households, communities, and policy makers in creating a more perfect democracy.

We are strictly
Since inception, LWV and all of our chapters have remained nonpartisan, never endorsing or opposing particular political parties or candidates. This helps messages on issues and legislation remain above partisan politics. It also promotes inclusion for greater citizen involvement, and has allowed the League to develop a strong, trusted voice for its advocacy and education campaigns.
Our position process:
Study & Action
“Study and Action” is LWVFL’s guide to public policy positions, updated and published every two years. It provides information about the League’s positions and work on issues facing Floridians and Americans in the areas of government, education, justice, social policy, sustainability, and natural resources.
All League members are encouraged to participate in the study and action process, from the adoption of a study to achieving a consensus to its conclusion with action.
