"If you are interested in understanding issues that affect our community welfare, our state and our nation, come out and meet us," said Kate Hurlock, president of LWVNC. "We are exploring ideas for next year's study group and welcome input from new and potential members."
A non-partisan political organization, the league works to increase understanding of public policy issues through education and advocacy and encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government. Over the years, league members published reports on adolescent sleep needs and school start times, which advocated for a later starting time for students in grades 7 to 12. The league conducts a candidates' forum in October before elections and publishes information guides. Additionally, every winter there is a legislative breakfast. Recently, the league endorsed and participated in the march against gun violence in Hartford. The league is also sponsoring an event at New Canaan High School this month about mobile technology in education.
