It’s up to you! There are many ways in which you can work with the League. Some of those are public such as our forums, debates, and educational meetings. Other work is behind the scenes where members can be involved in advocacy/action, producing educational documents and brochures, registering voters, website and social media, graphic design, working with study groups to help shape the League focus, and much, much more!
