Current Priority Issues (Program)
In League, Program means the issues that we choose for concerted study, education and action at local, state and national levels. Program can include both education and action.
The Program Planning process is part of what makes the League a grassroots organization; each League member has the opportunity to influence the selection of issues where the local, state, and national League will focus time, talent and money.

Below are the Programs for the local, state and national Leagues, adopted by the membership at the LWVPA Annual Meeting and by member delegates at the state and national conventions.
LWVPA Local Program: 2021-22
Program Areas of Emphasis:
In addition to continued support of the program of “Making Democracy Work” we will also work on
· Affordable Housing and Homelessness
· Civics Education
· Climate Change
· Local Campaign Finance Reform
1. Our local program will also include the Responsible Gun Ownership Committee’s ongoing efforts to have Palo Alto adopt and implement a safe storage of firearms ordinance.
2. ALL our work should be viewed through two lenses: racial justice and fair COVID recovery. Thus,
our Equal Justice committee will proceed, and each issue committee will continue to consider racial justice, equity and fair COVID recovery in what they do.
