Here is what
people in Birmingham and around the state of Alabama are saying about
"The League of Women Voters does what no other
organization does. It informs
people about national, state and local issues. An informed electorate
is the strength of a democratic society, and the League ensures that
flow of information."
Claude Bennett, M. D.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham
"Knowledge is growing with swift speed and the public
inundated with complex information about pertinent issues. Sorting it
all out is a challenge.
The League of Women Voters is exemplary in providing a
public forum where ideas are debated, issues are clarified and
recommendations for community betterment are formulated."
President Emerita, Birmingham Civil Rights
"There is much to be said about the importance of
ignobled and making a difference in one's community. There is even more
to be done. It is time to go beyond the 'talking phase', the 'wait and
see routine' and the 'complain syndrome' that many of us experience
from time to time.
The League of Women Voters offers a valualble service
vital information that helps individuals back words of concern and
frustration with strong action. Through their efforts, many citizens
have learned the importance of involvement, which is the key to
continued progress in our community."
Birmingham Mayor Richard Arrington, Jr.
"The League of Women Voters plays an important role in
democratic process, energizing and educating voters by providing them
with the information they need on election day. In an age where so many
view what happens at the polls in solely partisan terms, the work of
the League in battling voter apathy is a refreshing and important
commitment to democracy."
Former Alabama Secretary of State
"Thirty years of League membership not only has kept
informed and abreast of local, state, and national issues, but has
given me the opportunity to join with others in working for the good of
our community, state and nation."
Past President, LWVGB
