TALKING ABOUT VOTING

  --------------------------

The League of Women Voters of Brookline’s mission is to empower voters, defend democracy and demand accountability at all levels of government. This includes meaningful reforms to laws, policies, customs and practices in order to eliminate systemic racism. We call for transparency in the investigation process and justice for all victims of racism. Every person deserves equal protection and safety.  We pledge to work with the Brookline community for meaningful reforms to end systemic racism in our own backyard.      

There’s no right to vote without a right to live.
