The VLGA actively works to increase women’s participation in local governments as citizens, candidates and councillors. The VLGA plays an integral role in training and equipping women considering becoming a candidate in local government elections.

The VLGA's signature women's campaign, Local Women Leading Change will be officially launched on 7 March 2019 at Kensington Town Hall. To find out more about the event and register, click here.
