Program Priorities & Events

League program means the strategies we adopt to achieve desired outcomes that are contained in our positions on public policy issues. It is the education and advocacy platform adopted by members to empower voters and defend democracy.

Program planning is a valuable League tool for identifying issues for focus and for ensuring that League resources, human and financial, from our grassroots volunteers to our professional staff, are engaged where they have the most impact.

LWVSL Program Priorities for 2018-19

  • Promote voter education and participation in the election process.
  • Promote transparency in government including:
    – Observing and reporting to members on sessions and meetings of Salt Lake County and City governments.
  • Promoting League position at the Legislature (in conjunction with the Utah League).
  • Participate in efforts for the redistricting process for 2021.
  • Promote a Utah environment beneficial to life.
  • Monitor and promote social justice.
