What We Do and

Have Achieved

The League was founded in 1920 just 6 months before the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, which gave women the right to vote.  The League began as a “mighty political experiment” designed to help 20 million women carry out their new responsibilities as voters and to participate in shaping public policy. From the beginning, the League has been non-partisan, neither supporting nor opposing a candidate or political party. But it does believe in an active and informed citizenry. To that end, Leagues undertake voter registration efforts, advocate when necessary, and provide straightforward information on important issues so that voters can make their own decisions.

The Arlington League is a nonpartisan organization that conducts public forums on a wide array of issues of concern to the Arlington community. We also advocate for policy on positions established through internal study and democratic consensus. We do not take positions on candidates or political parties.

Our top priorities for 2018-2019, as chosen at our Annual Membership Meeting , are:

Voter Registration

Voter Protection

Affordable Housing

Redistricting
