The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
We are looking for the next person who exemplifies the characteristics of Susan B. Anthony -- her independence, persistence, determination and dedication in obtaining equal rights for all. Early in her life she developed a sense of justice and moral zeal. Anthony was assertive and compassionate by nature. She had a keen mind and a great ability to inspire.
To that end, we are making an appeal to our members and key community organizations to help us identify the twenty-second Susan B. Anthony award recipient and make our major fundraising event a continued success.
