LWVMD Priorities are based on feedback from the Local League level. We view Leadership and Allyship as equally important roles and critical responsibilities in our advocacy work. LWVMD will apply lenses of diversity, equity, and inclusion; transparency; and public access to every priority bill to ensure effective and equitable policy implementation.

Our legislative priorities for 2024 are:

Legislative Priorities

Making Democracy Work: Protecting voting rights, local election accountability & reform, and enhancing transparency & public access

Social & Economic Justice: Promoting affordable housing, equity & accountability in education, expanding behavioral health services, equity in criminal justice, and juvenile justice reform

Protecting the Environment: Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, advancing the renewable energy transition, and promoting environmental justice
