Get Involved. Be in the Know. 
Our Unit meetings are moving right along in their studies of important issues. The North Tulsa Unit will be concluding their year-long study "Re-entry into Society After Prison" this 
month following their "Life After Prison" community forum. The Br eakfast Unit will dive into a thought-provoking article entitled "Should Everybody V ote." And the Midtown Unit will continue their study and discussion of LWVMT's policies and positions. 

Join us at one of the Unit Meetings. Educated and informed voters are key to our democracy. The meeting dates and study materials may be found here

Successful Community Forums
