The League at Large
Washington League members have made huge impacts over the years on many important regional issues. LWVWA President Lunell Haught writes about how two of these issues, the Columbia River Treaty and the Hanford Nuclear Site cleanup exemplify our commitment to democracy, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and care for all.

The Shoreline Management Act at 50+ Years
LWVWA has recently completed a study on the Washington State Shoreline Management Act (SMA), one of the first environmental laws passed in our state. It regulates the development and uses of shorelines, and provides for public access to shorelines. Our new study analyzes its effectiveness over the past 50 years..

LWVUS Joins Call to Protect Old Growth Forests
LWVUS and 110+ other organizations sent a letter in support of protecting old growth forests to the Secretaries of the Department of Agriculture and the Department of the Interior. The Washington Department of Natural Resources has more information about these forests, their locations, and how they are identified and managed within our state.
