The President’s Perspective

Carole Jordan, Chapter President

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born in January, as were two great leaders of the women’s suffrage movement, Carrie Catt and Alice Paul. Catt famously is said to have founded the League of Women Voters to “continue the fight” toward voting for all. Paul created the Equal Rights Amendment, which has yet to pass after more than a century, although forward-thinking Kansans approved it in 1972. Dr. King, Carrie Catt and Alice Paul would all recognize the need to continue the fight today.

Join us to Make Democracy Work!

The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles:

  • Voters Services/Citizen Education: We present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process and issues.

  • Action/Advocacy: We are also nonpartisan; but after study we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.
