April Units: Where Did All That Fake News Come From?
Come to the League office at 328 E. Carrillo Street, Suite A, this Monday, April 10, at noon to learn more about "fake news" and "alternative facts." This is a new location for the discussion unit which had been meeting at Valle Verde. Bring your lunch!

The Carpinteria unit will be Wednesday, April 12 at 10 a.m. at the Carpinteria Women's Club. There was a lively discussion last week at the Madam Lu unit.

State and National Action Alerts
Legislation is moving fast these days so it is hard to stay informed on every issue. The best way is to sign up for League updates and action alerts.

For the LWVUS, click here to get the latest alerts and to respond to the League's call for actions. Get the LWVC action alerts and help us advocate on critical policy issues here. 

This year, legislation is moving very fast so there are frequent Action Alerts. One surprising one is about a move toward a Constitutional Convention for a balanced-budget amendment. Read the reasons for the LWVUS position against such a convention.
April Community Forum: What's New About Climate Change?
Wednesday, April 19, noon-2 p.m.
Louise Lowry Davis Center, 1232 De La Vina St.
Dr. Karl Hutterer, who teaches climate change for the Vistas Lifelong Learning program, will talk about what we are learning today about the rapid changes in climate and its effects around the world. Other panelists are: Cameron Gray from the Community Environmental Council, who will discuss innovations in controlling auto emissions; and Aeron Genet, the new director of the Air Pollution Control District, who will talk about new regulations controlling air quality in the state.

Please note that this forum will return to the Louise Lowry Davis Center. Bring friends and your lunch. Parking is free during the meeting. 
Earth Day Volunteers Needed

LWVSB will have a booth at Earth Day, on Saturday, April 22 at Alameda Park. We will be registering voters and talking about the League position on Climate Change and other important issues. Please call the office at 965-2422 or send us an email.

The event will be at the Santa Barbara Club, starting at 2:30 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets call 564-6803 or send an email. LWVSB is a coalition member.
Community Events
The League of Women Voters does not support or oppose candidates or political parties. The League encourages informed and active participation in government and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

As a service to our members who want information about the SB Progressive Coalition, Indivisible, and other local meetings and events, we are directing you to the Fund for Santa Barbara's Community Calendar.
We were happy to see so many people at our March Community Forum. I hope to see many of you again at our April 19 forum on the important subject of Climate Change. And don't forget to RSVP to our May 13 Garden Party.
