          Where We Stand: LWVIL Positions

          Where We Stand is the platform of the League of Women Voters of Illinois. In concert with the LWVUS guide to public policy positions, Impact on Issues, it forms the basis for all action taken by the Illinois Leagues on state and national issues and the League Principles. 
          Where We Stand 2019-2021 covers the LWVIL state positions and the action issues adopted at the 2019 Convention, which are designed to help local Leagues use the state program effectively. The material is organized into four topic sections: Representative Government, Natural Resources, and Social Policy
