LWVIN Joins Civic Alliances and Ramps its Efforts on National Voter Registration Day


Indiana


The League of Women Voters of Indiana (LWVIN) is proud to become a part of The Indiana Civics Coalition and to join Business For America (BFA) as it announces the BFA-led launch of the Indiana Business Alliance for Civics (IBAC) on Monday, September 18th, 2023 at 10:00am at the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site, 1230 N. Delaware St., Indianapolis, IN 46202.


LWVIN believes civic engagement is the responsibility of everyone in our communities; this

includes individuals, organizations, and businesses alike. The responsibility to be good ‘civic

citizens’ should be shared by all. But the business community can play a greater role to promote civic health. To quote BFA, “Business leaders can play an essential role in addressing Indiana’s civic education gap by stepping outside the partisan fray and promoting constructive bipartisan dialogue... to discuss ways for business to play a role in elevating civic literacy in the Hoosier State.”


Some of the core and ongoing activities for League Chapters throughout the State are voter

registration, voter education, and voter engagement. Monday, September 18this sandwiched

between two other very important dates – Constitution Day on September 17th, and National Voter Registration Day on September 19th. With these important September dates fast approaching, here are highlights for some of the League Chapters that will be conducting voter registration drives on or near National Voter Registration Day, September 19th.

LWVIN is proud of the work our League Chapters do throughout Indiana to inform, educate, and advocate for all in Indiana. League Chapters engage in important work in each of our communities, and as we seek to grow our community connections through the IBAC, our local Chapters will help lead the way to bring exceptional civic literacy to everyone.


The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan civic organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
