LWV Edina Positions
Program has a unique LWV meaning at the League. Simply put, program is education and advocacy. Education is the first step of advocacy. It can include studies by which LWV’ers reach consensus on the issue or by concurrence where members take advantage of a study done by another League by using their background information and concurring with their position. It is those positions and the LWVUS principles on which all advocacy is based. No advocacy can be undertaken without a supporting LWV position. We speak with one voice and never work against a position, although some levels remain silent on specific positions.
More details can be found in the Program Positions Background Info document. LWV Edina positions are outlined below; click each one for further information.
