In 2020, the League of Women Voters celebrates its centennial. This significant event provides the opportunity for us to recognize our past struggles, celebrate our many successes and continue our outreach!

100 Years Strong: League of Women Voters 1920-2020 The League of Women Voters of Johnson County invites you to join us in celebrating the 100th birthday of the League of Women Voters, a grassroots, nonpartisan organization. Our community-wide event will be held on Saturday, February 29, 2020, at Yardley Hall, Johnson County Community College starting at 2 p.m.

The League of Women Voters is a citizens’ organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all citizens in the decisions that impact their lives. LWV came into existence in February 1920, just before the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which gave women the right to vote.

The establishment of this nonpartisan organization was dedicated to assuring all citizens can participate in our democracy, that government is open and transparent, and our political system serves the needs of the people and not special interests. The history of the League is truly monumental and is especially meaningful as we actively work on creating a more perfect democracy, tackling the significant issues that affect our country.
