2017 was a year of bold action for the Texas League! We have much to celebrate:
- Growing membership and newly forming local Leagues
- Substantial growth in outreach through social media, action alerts, testimony, and newspaper and radio interviews
- LWV-Texas with NAACP Texas lawsuit filed to prevent the Texas Secretary of State from disclosing our personal information to the so-call Election “Integrity” Commission
I am so proud of each and every one of you for all you have done to make 2017 a banner year. For more about our accomplishments in 2017, see our

P.S. I hope you love the League's new mission statement as much as I do:
Empowering voters. Defending democracy.
P.P.S. The League's new value statement is awesome as well:

It recognizes our historical roots in the suffrage movement while recognizing that we have a long way to go -- that our democracy will be "more perfect" when women are equal partners in decision making.
Thank you for your dedication! We are Making Democracy Work® in Texas!
