Program Planning 

The League of Women Voters of Napa County (LWVNC) is a grassroots organization that sets its agenda through the “Program Planning” process. The League of Women Voters of Napa County (LWVNC) met on February 6 to choose our priorities in education and advocacy to determine what we want for the future of California and Napa County.

  • What are the issues of concern to us here in Napa County?

  • Where is there a need for legislative activity and other types of advocacy, both in Sacramento and in our county?

Advocacy is a key League activity year-round. For example, we supported or opposed 8 of the 12 statewide ballot measures in November 2020, and in addition, many bills we supported—from racial justice to voting rights—were signed into law.

  • We discussed what we will do to participate in the LWVNC Campaign to Make Democracy Work.

  • We discussed what critical issues we see emerging that perpetuate the widening wealth gap between people with great wealth and those who have lower incomes.
