How are we structured? What is our history? What is our mission?
We are women and men of the Piedmont Triad, working politically, but in a non-partisan way,on many issues.
Over the years we have had sessions for the public called Civics 101, 102, 103, 104 covering general government in our area, the judicial system, and health care.
A former president has served as Mayor of Greensboro and our members currently serve on the City Council of Greensboro and the Board of County Commissioners while other members serve in the judiciary and in the general assembly.
In 2000 we followed the lead of another League in North Carolina and instituted lunch meetings, Lunch with the League. Our attendance has gone from approximately 35 to over 100 people at some meetings. We have speakers or panels on topics of interest to our League and to the community at large.
Over many years, the LWVPT has studied many topics and arrived at consensus to form positions for action. Our most recent local study was the jail and alternatives to incarceration in Guilford County.
The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles.
Our Vision, Beliefs, and Intentions guide our activities.
