Dearborn-Dearborn Heights

Dearborn-Dearborn Heights

The League of Women Voters was founded in 1920 by leaders of the women’s suffrage movement who believed in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.

The League is proud to be nonpartisan, neither supporting nor opposing candidates or political parties at any level of government, but always working to protect and expand voting rights and ensure everyone is represented in our democracy.

An activist, grassroots organization, the League has been working for over 100 years to empower voters and defend democracy through advocacy, education, and litigation, at the local, state, and national levels.

Every day, the freedom to vote is under attack. Since the Supreme Court decision of Shelby County v. Holder that gutted the Voting Rights Act (VRA), at least twenty-nine states have passed ninety-four laws that make it harder to vote, with the burden falling hardest on Black voters and other voters of color.
