A representative of the Crisis Center will present the local perspective on the state study topic Human Trafficking. League members will present other information including statewide figures on the prevalence of human trafficking. The League also will have available Voters’ Guides discussing the pros and cons of the proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution. Early voting on these amendments is currently under way.


The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization committed to promoting informed citizenship through its activities including the production of Voters’ Guides, convening candidate forums and publishing other information on voting and access to public officials. The League does not support or oppose any political candidate or party.


The League does, at times, take a position on government issues critical to public and community life. As is the case with the statewide human trafficking study, the League does not take a position on an issue until it has been studied by members who then reach a consensus on what that position should be. Issue studies can arise at the local, state or national level. Studies can promote both advocacy for a position and education of the underlying information.


"The League’s process for study has acquired a solid reputation for its in-depth and unbiased exploration of issues submitted to its grassroots membership for informed discussion," The League of Women Voters of Texas states on its website.


The League’s positions on many issues, as well as information on the new voter ID law and other topics of interest to voters, are available at: http://www.lwvtexas.org.
