Call  to LWVGC Annual Meeting 2017
 
Special E-News - April 5, 2017 

The Third Annual Meeting of the
League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland (LWVGC)
will take place Saturday, June 3, 2017. See details below.

Making Democracy Work by Fighting for Fair Districts

There are many good reasons to attend Annual Meeting besides hearing a speaker who will be addressing topics highly relevant to League's policy concerns. Visit with League friends, get to know new members, or, if you are a new member, meet fellow Leaguers and learn more about League. Hear the latest news about League's work over the past year and what to expect in the coming year. Congressional redistricting reform is high on LWVGC's agenda, but so are the other "legs of the stool" for the National League's Campaign for Making Democracy Work: decreasing the influence of money in politics and protecting voting rights. Local issues are also cropping up as state and federal tax cuts squeeze schools, transportation, and other important functions of local government.

Members joining before April 15 of this year (2017) will be eligible to vote, but newer, non-voting members are welcome to attend. All members are free to bring guests.
