Who are we? We are the League of Women Voters, an organization of women and men who want to make a difference in the political future of our country. We are a diverse, non-partisan, political group with a long-standing tradition of educating voters.
The All City Luncheon on Wednesday, April 19th is almost here; do you have your ticket? Have you asked friends to come with you? We don't want you to be sorry you missed it! And... is it going to be good? YES! We are going to have a most interesting speaker, Ari Berman, a nationally recognized commentator and author! Mr. Berman's Give US the Ballot is a history of the Voting Rights Act which, as we have previously reported, the Supreme Court gutted in Shelby vs. Holder.
Voting rights could not be more pertinent as we are experiencing a rise in voter suppression in many parts of the country.
The Oakland League has been part of many community conversations. We want to share with you valuable resources from our friends at the National Immigration Law Center. You can share these resources with students, parents, educators, friends and family who might have questions. Know Your Rights!
Thanks to the LWV Los Angeles!
