Join the League, and you'll play an active role in our democracy while contributing to your local community. As a member, you can shape the direction of LWVSF and help us achieve our important work.
Become a member for $85, or have your household join for $120. Or, pick a special level to give more to defend democracy. All fees are per year. You'll get a confirmation email within 24 hours. If you're already a member, our system will record your renewal.
Check out our newsletter for ways members can work on issues, learn about politics, register voters, educate the public, step into leadership, and more.
Come to events to learn from speakers or shape the League. Some events, like our happy hours, picnics, and holiday party, help members form relationships.
Sign up to socialize virtually with one or more members. It's a way to get to know each other and be more connected to the League.
Share your interests and thoughts on membership. Feedback such as our survey results helps us enhance our programs and member experience.
Connect, collaborate, and stay up to date on everything a member needs to know in our Slack. If you're a member and need help with Slack, email us.
In general, yes. As an organization, we're nonpartisan but political, which means we do not support or oppose candidates or political parties. We do take positions on issues, policies, and legislation.
We encourage the political involvement of our members. Our democracy and political parties benefit from the participation of informed people. Our members as individuals can be active in a political party, participate in a candidate campaign, or seek election to public office. However, while doing those activities, members should not wear a League logo or represent themselves as a League member. They also may not conduct those activities while performing a service or attending an event as a League member or volunteer.
There are some limits put on the political activity of our board members to maintain the nonpartisanship of the organization.
Membership in LWVSF has many perks. In addition to supporting the League, you'll learn about politics, meet with local representatives, and get invaluable experience in public policy and government.
We host many events for members, some with expert speakers, some just for fun.
Because we're a member-led grassroots organization, you'll have many opportunities to learn new skills and take on leadership roles. You'll help set the direction of LWVSF by voting on our budget, board of directors, and other key decisions. And, members can educate people about elections, register voters, serve on or chair a committee, advocate about an area of focus, serve in an appointed seat, and more!
You can influence the work of the national and state Leagues. LWVSF members vote on the areas of focus of the local, state, and national Leagues. They also can attend the state and national League conventions on behalf of LWVSF. Membership in LWVSF includes membership in the Bay Area, California, and U.S. Leagues.
People of all genders are welcome to become members. We're fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Even if you don't live in San Francisco, you're welcome to become a member.
We have members who live elsewhere in the Bay Area and beyond who have a connection to San Francisco. They may have roots in the city, family who lives here, or a job based in San Francisco. Or they may have previously lived in the city, are temporarily employed somewhere else, or have plans to move here in the future. And some simply want to support our voter education and policy advocacy work.
Some members who moved out of San Francisco become donors instead to continue to help us defend democracy.
Members who are not San Francisco residents are not able to serve in some of our appointed seats because of city regulations that govern these appointments.
Become a member for $85, or have your household join for $120.
The other membership levels, such as Susan B. Anthony and Eleanor Roosevelt, let us celebrate and recognize members who want to give a generous donation with their membership.
If you're an enrolled high school or college student, you can either join as a standard member or choose the $25 a year student price, whichever fits your budget.
You can pay what you can for membership. You'll get the same benefits of membership in the League of Women Voters of San Francisco.
