The Observer Corps protects and strengthens the citizen’s right to know, and the League promotes this nonpartisan effort to enlighten and empower individuals to play an active role in their government at all levels and give them access to information that makes their lives better and their communities stronger.
Our goals are to provide the LWV and the public with information about their local government and to ensure that local government is aware of public interest and scrutiny regarding their efforts on our behalf.

Sunshine Week ~ Your Right To Know
Sunshine Week is designed to highlight open government and freedom of information at the local, state and federal levels.
The League regularly celebrates Sunshine Week. The League has supported Sunshine Week since its inception in 2005 as a way to highlight the importance of open government and freedom of information.
“Sunshine,” or openness in government, refers to two distinct areas: access to public records and access to public meetings. Every day, people have the right to know what actions their government is taking by attending public meetings and accessing public documents.
