LOCAL, STATE & NATIONAL STUDIES

Currently we are studying a state study, Privacy & Cybersecurity. Once a year each local League has the opportunity to suggest a one to two year study on which local League members research and prepare a final report. The League of Women Voters of Oregon (LWVOR) in 2015 studied Hard Rock Mining in Oregon and did an update of the Elections Method Study done in 2008.

INFORMATIVE MEETINGS

In person meetings are on hold for now due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Everyone, stay safe by staying at home as much as you can.

We are using Zoom or a similar virtual meeting platforms for conducting meetings until further notice. Our monthly general meetings offer education on important issues to League members and the community.  We also sponsor or co-sponsor public forums on topics of interest or on areas where the League conducts studies such as, in the past, the LWVUS’s three studies on constitutional amendments, redistricting, and money in elections.

ACTION NETWORK

To encourage League members to work for legislative changes in areas where we have positions. See LWVOR, the state League’s website.

OBSERVER CORPS

Find out what’s going on in your local government. Represent the League by attending local public meetings virtually to observe meeting process and learn about community decision making. And it is an easy way to be informed, support your League and stay in touch with governing bodies.

Attend a Douglas County Commissioners meeting (held once a week on Wednesdays), or a Roseburg City council meeting, a School Board meeting, or a Douglas County planning commission meeting. Take notes while you’re there. Refrain from making any statements; we are there only as observers, not to participate. Please fill out the short report form and forward it to the League. That’s it. Consider participating in this way. Contact a board member.

In order for our League to accomplish this work we need the help of our members and our community supporters. Would You Like to be Part of the Solution? Want to be informed? Join the League of Women Voters!
