The League has an active presence in the Evanston community. Our organization serves the needs of the community through programs such as:

  • Public meetings on current governmental issues
  • Sponsorship of candidate debates
  • Observing and reporting on Evanston governmental boards and commissions
  • Voter registration
  • Action on selected topics which the League has studied

The League serves the interests of our members, too, with networking opportunities through our monthly luncheons, a chance to be up close and personal with state and local legislators at our annual summer luncheon, getting the buzz on issues through the Intercom newsletter.
