You can look at our calendar and our volunteer page to learn about specific upcoming activities.
Voters’ Service: Each year we seek opportunities to register voters, in cooperation with other organizations and on our own. We publish a Voters’ Guide for West Hartford elective offices and for other towns in our region upon request. With West Hartford Community Television, we produce televised debates for West Hartford elections. In 2014, we also coordinated/moderated debates in Bloomfield, Simsbury and Stafford Springs. We would like to expand our voters’ service activities to more towns in the Greater Hartford region, so please join us and strengthen our efforts!
Bringing Democracy Closer to You: LWVGH organizes an elected officials’ reception in a member’s home each December, to allow League members and their guests the opportunity to get to know Town Council members, Board of Education members, state legislators and others in a relaxed setting. We also host a legislative breakfast each January, during which time legislators participate in a moderated conversation about upcoming legislative issues.
Study and Action: We study issues to learn more about them and to enable our League to take action. The League does not take action on any issues unless we have studied and arrived at consensus on the issue. Issues and Action Page
Informational Meetings: We hold regular meetings to learn about current topics of interest. This year we are focusing upon 2 topics: Transparency in Government and Local Planning/Zoning. We will hold educational programs on these topics throughout the year. Check the Calendar for our schedule.
