LWVUS Volunteer Opportunities:
LWV Lobby Corps
- The LWVUS Volunteer Lobby Corps is a dedicated group of members who are within commuting distance to the U.S. Capitol in Washington DC. They help the LWVUS Advocacy team by lobbying targeted members of the U.S. Congress on issues that have both: (a) been agreed for the LWV at the national level, and (b) are currently up for consideration within Congress. Members receive a briefing about once per month on the agreed topic, and then make their own appointments with the relevant staff of assigned Congressional representatives (usually those identified as potential swing votes). For the most part, the volunteers commit about three work-days of time per month for about 8 - 9 months per year. On the job training is provided to new members.
