The Making Democracy Work Award was instituted in 2017.  The award recognizes and celebrates a person or persons who:

  • Envision ways to improve the community
  • Have actively participated in creating a strong, safe, vibrant community
  • Have mobilized others to help effect beneficial change
  • Lead efforts to introduce public policy that promotes fairness, equality and diversity
  • Are passionate about safeguarding democracy

Nominations are invited from the community as well as from League members.  Note that the Making Democracy Work Award recognizes broader contributions than solely to the League of Women Voters, although participation in League activities  certainly may qualify as a portion of the contribution for which an awardee would be recognized.

If you would like to nominate someone for this award, here is the form for doing so.
