Making Democracy Work Award

League of Women Voters of the Cincinnati Area is very proud to be giving out our second Making Democracy Work Award at this event. The Making Democracy Work Award is presented to an organization, individual or couple who have empowered citizens to shape better communities.

For their accomplishments, LWVCA is honored to present the Ohio Innocence Project with our 2017 Making Democracy Work Award! The Ohio Innocence Project works to free innocent Ohioans from prison. Based at the University of Cincinnati College of Law, the group has thus far freed 24 innocent Ohioans who together have served more than 450 years in prison for crimes they didn't commit.

Supporting Our Work

The League of Women Voters of the Cincinnati Area Education Fund is a nonpartisan public policy educational organization, which builds citizen participation in the democratic process, studies key community issues at all government levels in an unbiased manner, and enables people to seek positive solutions to public policy issues through education and conflict management. We believe in respect for individuals, the value of diversity, the empowerment of the grassroots, and the power of collective decision making for the common good.

The League of Women Voters was created out of the women's suffrage movement and was formed quickly after women gained the right to vote in 1920. While our name connects to our history, the League works to educate and empower all voters.

All proceeds support LWVCA Education Fund's nonpartisan voter education activities:
