When & Where
League of Women Voters Houston Area Education Fund
The League of Women Voters of the United States and the League of Women Voters of the Houston Area were both established in 1920, the year that the nineteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States gave women the right to vote. The League of Women Voters is a direct descendant of the women’s suffrage movement, repositioning an active and effective organization to henceforth serve all voters. The League continues as a grassroots organization working at the national, state, and local levels. Membership in the League of Women Voters of the Houston Area includes membership in our state League (LWV TX) and in the national League (LWV US).
The League of Women Voters Houston Area Education Fund is a nonprofit, tax-deductible 501(c)3 organization with the LWV-HA Board serving as trustees. It is not a member organization. The Education Fund can receive tax-deductible gifts to be used for educational purposes. The Education Fund works to encourage the active and informed participation of citizens in government and to increase understanding of major public policy issues. The Education Fund provides research, publications and forums on public policy issues.
