FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham League of Women Voters announced today, April 16, the Framingham chapter has been granted their Local League Recognition by the National League of Women Voters.
“I am so excited about this recognition and new chapter for Framingham’s League of Women Voters,” said Stephanie Deeley, Chapter President. “I want to thank our members, especially our Board of Directors, for their involvement and doing all the work necessary to make us a stand alone unit. You are all awesome!”
Re-established in 2017, the Framingham chapter has served as a unit under the Massachusetts League of Women Voters. Their operations and financial status has been under the purview of the state league. With this national recognition, the Framingham League of Women Voters is now an official chapter.
The Framingham League of Women Voters has been actively engaged in the community since its inception sponsoring debates, doing voter registration at the summer Concerts on the Green, holding several League sponsored Informed Framingham events, and with their cable access show. As a nonpartisan grassroots organization, we encourage the informed and active participation of citizens in government, work to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy.
The League is open to all (including men) and is a citizens’ organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all citizens in the decisions that impact their lives.
