Issues and Action

The League of Women Voters will only take action on issues we have studied and on which we have reached consensus — general member agreement.

SUPPORT LEGISLATIVE ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE

VOTE "YES" on this Nov. 6 BALLOT RESOLUTION:

"Shall our Representatives and Senators in the U.S. Congress sponsor and/or support measures that will address the serious threat posed by climate change?"

If you live in YORK TOWNSHIP, you will find this question on your ballot when you go to the polls on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Sample Ballot: Climate Change

It is important for our legislators to know that we, their constituents, want them to work ambitiously to combat climate change. Often legislators hesitate to act on an issue because they are not sure of their constituents' support. 

Climate change is a non-partisan issue impacting us all. The Midwest has and continues to experience extreme heat as well as heavy downpours and flooding that affect infrastructure, health, agriculture, forestry, transportation, air quality, water quality in the Great Lakes (our source of drinking water), and more.

Taking action on climate change will result in significant benefits, including job creation, improved public health, increased international security and competitiveness, and preservation of critical food and ocean resources.
