Public Safety

The League of Women Voters of Minneapolis has studied public safety, developed positions for action, and continues to monitor and participate in activities in order to:

  • Educate voters and
  • Drive change

It is essential for all citizens to be informed and hold our public officials accountable to achieve the public safety the citizens of Minneapolis deserve.


Our Rich History

100 years and counting

League of Women Voters has a 100-year history of striving to make democracy work for all citizens. Its roots are in thesuffragist movement, but it quickly moved from the enfranchisement of women to take on the issues of the day – always in a non-partisan framework supported by volunteers.

Much has changed since 1919. LWV is inclusive of all gender identities, and non-citizens. The goals of supporting goodgovernment have remained the same, however. We invite youto explore League in its decade-by-decade work to promote civic engagement and strong communities.
