The “Greater New Brunswick Area” Chapter
The League of Women’s Voters Greater New Brunswick Area was founded in the beginning of 2018 by Jill Lewis-Spector. Members of the LWGNBA are dedicated to upholding the League’s mission through civic education and voter registration drives throughout the community, impacting everyone from high school students, to middle aged adults, to senior citizens.
Our chapter is a vibrant community of engaged citizens who have organized many different subcommittees within our group. Subcommittees include: Civics Education, Student Organizing, Voter Services, Webmasters, and the YVote – Essay/Video Contest.
The League of Women’s Voters is a non-partisan political organization that encourages civic engagement, influencing public policy matters, working to establish a more politically informed populous. The LWVGNBA is committed to ensuring these principles, further empowering women, helping them become more confident to become politically active, striving to create a more perfect democracy.
League of Women Voters History
Founded in 1920 by Carrie Chapman Catt, the League began as a “mighty political experiment” to help women become more politically active after garnering suffrage. The League was established as a non-partisan organization to protect it from becoming involved with the party politics of the 1920s. Since then the League has continued to grow as a non partisan grassroots organization, encouraging its members to be politically involved while promoting civi engagement and education throughout their communities.
