Certificate Honoring and Commending the LWV-Hawaii

FOR ITS DEDICATION AND PERSEVERANCE IN PROVIDING THE PEOPLE OF HAWAII
WITH THE RESOURCES NECESSARY TO ATTAIN DEMOCRACY IN OUR STATE

The League of Women Voters is an organization which provides political education and experience contributing to the intellectual growth of the citizens of Hawaii and assuring the success of Hawaii's democracy. Though non-partisan as to political parties and candidates, the League is decidedly not impartial on issues. The League's record for legislative tenacity and success is formidable -- and it has been said that grown men shudder at its opposition while wise men strive for its support.

The League of Women Voters of the United States of America was founded on February 14, 1920. It was in existence six months before the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution brought the women of America the Constitutional guarantee of full voting rights after a 72-year struggle. The League of Women Voters has emerged as the longest-enduring offspring of the Suffrage Movement.

It was in 1948 that the late Dr. Allan Saunders and 15 women formed the Honolulu Chapter of the League of Women Voters. Since its inception, the League of Women Voters of Honolulu has been dedicated to effect changes in the social and political structure of this County through informed citizen involvement and concerted political action.

On behalf of the People of the City and County of Honolulu, the Council honors and commends the LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS for its extraordinary efforts in the continued pursuit of providing our citizens with the resources necessary to attain democracy in our State and in the nation. The Council applauds and thanks the members of the League for their many hours of informative, educated, and helpful testimony on a multitude of issues before this body. The Council thanks the League for a job well done and looks forward to working with the League in the future.
