LWVPA Board Approves Criminal Justice Position
At the June 2015 LWVPA Convention, delegates approved a study of the criminal justice system with the intention of creating a Pennsylvania position on criminal justice. A state-wide committee researched the issues surrounding the Pennsylvania criminal justice system during the fall of 2015 and made study materials available to local Leagues in January 2016. Local Leagues completed consensus by May 2016 resulting in the following position, approved by the LWPVA board at their June meeting.
Local Leagues are encouraged to learn more about this important issue and consider ways to use this new position for advocacy in their own communities. Find out more here.
