Agriculture Study Consensus
Members of the Agriculture Update Consensus Study committee of the League of Women Voters of the Greater Dayton Area met with two representatives of the Ohio Farm Bureau on April 4th to gain the local farm community's perspective on the agriculture questions. The local consensus results will become part of the updated National League position on agriculture. The Dayton League is planning to have a program on these updated agriculture issues in April 2015.

About our League
The League of Women Voters of the Greater Dayton Area (LWVGDA) is one of the first Leagues established in 1920 after passage of the 19th amendment, making it a proud and direct descendent of the women’s suffrage movement. Over 250 members strong, LWVGDA encompasses both Montgomery and Greene Counties, and is an active partner of the State of Ohio League and the League of Women Voters U.S. The League is nonpartisan, and neither supports nor opposes any political party or candidate, but does take action on issues following careful study and member consensus. All women and men eligible to vote are invited to join League. It’s not just about having the right to vote, it’s about what we do with it.
