NEWBY NORFOLK BRANCE Virginia League of Women Voters AFFILIATED WITH THE NATIONAL LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTER NORFOLK, VA. Mr. David Pender
President of Kiwanis Club
I24 Randolph st. Norfolk Va. My Dear Mr. Pender;-
Finding the League of Women Voters is generally classed in the public mind under the heard of politics, may I explain the nature of our organization and ask your assistance in setting us straight in the classification of city clubs. We are organized for the sole purpose of study of citizenship and promotion of efficiency in governmentand international Peace;therefore we are education and patriotic but certainly not political in the common use of the word, for our constitution forbids alliance with any party or endorsement of any candidates. It forbids the president and officer of a league holding any political office during her term of officein the league;but any member is free tojoin the party of her and work the advancement of her party primciples.
