Joan Call, one of our members, will show a film about the ERA and why we still need it.
One of several workshops will cover League Basics for new officers and directors.
The League is and strives to remain non-partisan in all our activities, publications, and events. However, from time to time, we may cross-promote events related to our stated positions on issues even when the organization or speaker is not strictly non-partisan. This should not be taken as an endorsement from the League, but rather as encouragement for our members to become familiar with topics they might find interesting.
We believe that educating voters on a variety of topics, from a variety of perspectives, is an essential function of a healthy democracy.
