Join Us Feb. 8 for All Kinds Are Welcome Here Lobby Day

The LWV-WV is excited to join with other organizations and individuals committed to moving West Virginia forward as a supporting partner of the 2018 All Kinds Are Welcome Here Civil Liberties Lobby Day on February 8 at the State Capitol in Charleston.

Come stand with us in solidarity to show the West Virginia Legislature that West Virginia should be a place that welcomes and respects ALL people!

There will be an advocacy training starting at 9 am to make sure you are comfortable talking with your elected officials about issues that matter to you, followed by a large press conference and rally featuring our lawmakers and other members of the community. Following the press conference, attendees will watch a floor session from the House or Senate galleries at 11 am when legislators convene.

The afternoon is devoted to meeting with your elected officials. Attendees are encouraged to arrange their own meetings with their legislators, but there will be a table were folks can connect with others from their area to attend meetings as a group. 

Please register here to let us know which parts of the day you’ll be attending, and which issues matter the most to you.

We look forward to seeing you there. Please stop by our table in the lower rotunda. 

All kinds are welcome and all voices must be heard! Please join us and invite your friends today.

Legislative Priorities – 2018

The League of Women Voters of West Virginia has adopted the following issues as its legislative priorities for the 2018 session of the West Virginia Legislature. We hope you will support measures that advance these goals.


The League of Women Voters of West Virginia:

  • Supports maintaining West Virginia’s water quality standards to protect this valuable resource.
  • Supports strengthening disclosure requirements for the sources of political campaign expenditures, including independent expenditures and election-related communications.
  • Supports establishment of an independent commission to draw up redistricting plans for representatives to the US House of Representatives and the WV Legislature.
  • Supports measures that encourage investment in energy efficiency in West Virginia’s homes, businesses, and industries such as the LEEP program.
  • Supports maintaining expanded Medicaid coverage for the hundreds of thousands of West Virginians who rely on it for health care.

In keeping with its goal of encouraging participation by citizens in their government, the League will continue to monitor election laws and oppose measures which limit access to voting.

Our members will be following action on these and other issues during the 2018 session. We appreciate your willingness to undertake public service and work toward our shared goal of creating a better West Virginia for all of its citizens.


Jonathan Rosenbaum, President
