Fostering Diversity in the League
We All Can Be League Members!
We All Can Be League Members!
One of LWVGR's commitments is to have our League represent a more diverse population consistent with the area it serves. The Board of Directors has requested a temporary committee be formed under the leadership of LWVGR VP Jo Minor to consider ways this goal can be met. She is looking for members, both long time and new, who might wish to serve on this committee. The committee will require a six month commitment and final report to be submitted to the Board of Directors. Approval of the recommendations will be by LWVGR membership at the Annual Meeting in June, 2019.
Please contact Jo at vicepresident@lwvgr.net if you are interested.


League Members Honored for ERA Amendment Work
Two of our members, Faye Marcus and Sarah Heidemann, were nominated for the Trailblazer Award for their work to pass the ERA. Faye Marcus was honored as one of three LWV members nominated from around the state. We applaud both Faye and Sarah for their efforts to ensure the ERA was ratified in Illinois.
