LWV & AAUW host discussion of Domestic and Gun Violence. The Chapel Hill Chapter of the American Assoc. of Univ. Women together with the League of Women Voters will host a meeting concerning domestic violence and how gun violence impacts women.

One of our members, Lisa Price, has been very involved in gun control organizations and is working on a speaker to specifically address gun violence. Additionally, a representative from COMPASS will speak about the scope of violence against women in our area.

More information about this event will be posted as it becomes available.

The League of Women Voters is proud of our history as a non-partisan, education-focused organization. We work hard to ensure that all of our sponsored events uphold these values by welcoming elected representatives, civic leaders, experts, and citizens from all background and affiliations to our programs and panels.

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.
