Olympia, WA League of Women Voters

The Importance of Building Powerful Organizations

On July 1st, we met with the League of Women Voters (LWV) of Olympia, WA.  The LWV is a 94 year old league. It was founded six months before the 19th amendment was ratified and granted women the right to vote. The League was designed to aid and motivate women in their new found responsibility as first time voters. In present day, the League is a non-partisan organization that believes citizens should be civically engaged within their communities. During their visit to the Jack O’Dell Educational Center, we discussed what it takes to be a good citizen. We believe that a good citizen has the ability to empathize with others, loves to experience life in order to learn, as well as keep hope alive in their hearts. What do you think it takes to be a good citizen?
