Additional Information about the LWVO Lobby Corps.
The LWVO Lobby Corps consists of volunteers across the state who choose one or two issue areas in which to build specialized knowledge. They then work to track and influence policy at the state level to reflect the League’s position on those issues.
Exactly what form that work takes depends upon what actions policymakers are proposing or pursuing and the individual Corps member’s availability and commitment. Some members are able and choose to attend committee hearings relevant to their issue, while others track legislation using Hannah, the online Statehouse news service (more information in Resources). Many issues have lobbying teams consisting of several people or more, allowing for collaboration and division of work based on availability and interest. Much of the coordination occurs over email, meaning lobbyists can offer expertise and input from any part of Ohio.
The League is strictly nonpartisan, meaning we do not endorse political parties or candidates, but we do take positions on issues and advocate based on those positions. This is important to keep in mind and reiterate to officials if/when you engage in lobbying activities. Our nonpartisan stance and fact-based positions give us credibility across the partisan political spectrum, and we must live up to that by being informed and impartial.
