|We are excited to announce that the Women Power the Vote Discussion Series: Defining the Next 100 Years kick-off has been rescheduled for Monday, August 17, 2020, at 1 p.m. EDT. |
LWVUS Chief Executive Officer Virginia Kase will sit down with LWVUS President Deborah Turner for a one-hour discussion on what lies ahead for democracy in America, and how all women can be active participants. This powerful discussion will examine how women voters can better elevate the voices and perspectives of women of color, how we can protect current voting rights while continuing to expand access, and what role we all play in the racial justice movement.
As we approach the anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment on August 18, LWVUS will dig into the work we need to do over the next 100 years to ensure fair elections with participation by all, particularly those who have been marginalized in the past.
This conversation will be streamed live on the LWVUS Facebook page and will include a live question and answer portion to provide an opportunity for viewers across the country to pose questions through social media. Viewers are encouraged to share the event on Facebook with your followers and to use the hashtag #WomenPowertheVote when participating in the discussion on social media. We hope you’ll join us on Monday, August 17!
