Making Democracy Work

Studies, Projects and Volunteer Opportunities

Current Studies and Issues

The Bucks County League of Women Voters in conjunction with the the National and State organizations provides education and discussion opportunities on important public issues.

If you are new to League, you may never have been involved in a League study. The Bucks County League has not participated in a study in several years.

In 2015 and 2016, our League will be doing four studies: two National studies and two PA State studies.

National has published a Handbook for Successful Consensus Meetings which can help both new and old members understand studies. Consensus is not a vote; rather, a mutual agreement process by League members through a discussion of the issues.

The League has many positions which can be found in a document called Impact on Issues. These positions were formed by taking Consensus or Concurrence after "studying" the issues. Periodically the League reviews the positions for possible updating.

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Bucks County Women's Advocacy Coalition

    In 2007, our local League was asked to join with other like-minded organizations in the county to form the Bucks County Women's Advocacy Coalition. We share several goals including education and advocacy to increase participation in government and to influence public social policy. Working together with the Bucks County Women's Advocacy Coalition, we can bring lasting and positive change to families in Bucks County by speaking in a unified voice!
