The vision and goal of the League of Women Voters is to empower citizens to shape better communities worldwide.

Locally, in pursuit of that shared vision, LWVCC:

  • studies key community issues with an eye to action in the public interest.
  • engages our community, through education and advocacy, to seek solutions to public policy issues.

We believe in:

  • respect for individuals.
  • the value of diversity.
  • the empowerment of the grassroots, both within the league and in communities generally.

We will:

  • act with trust, integrity and professionalism.
  • take the initiative in seeking diversity in membership.
  • operate in an open and effective manner to meet the needs of those we serve, both league members and the community at large.
  • acknowledge our heritage as we seek our path to the future.
