Advocacy

The Local Advocacy Committee (LAC) supports the advocacy efforts of the League of Women Voters of Central New Mexico (LWVCNM) by assisting members who believe that the League should advocate on a local public issue. They are a resource to help members understand when and how the League can engage in local advocacy as a nonpartisan and impartial organization. This page contains a resource guide produced by the LWV: Observing Your Government in Action / Protecting Your Right to Know. There are also links to the guidelines for advocacy and the Observer Corp.
