On Thursday, we will have our monthly virtual meeting at 6:30 via Zoom. We will hear from speakers from three amazing groups. SC for Ed will discuss issues facing our schools and education in Charleston County, Arm-in-Arm will talk about the open carry legislation being debated at the statehouse. Finally, Secure the Ballot is a nonprofit focused on registering and educating young voters in South Carolina and North Carolina in a similar way that Stacey Abrams group did in Georgia. Secure the Ballot will also be seeking volunteers. If you want to know how to get involved in any of these important initiatives, you should definitely join us on Thursday.

LWV Good Governance Symposium Series Session 1:
Voting RightsThe League of Women Voters is holding its inaugural Good Governance Symposium Series to encourage thoughtful non-partisan discussion of public policy issues and topics. This series will promote education and awareness relating to critical good government issues that impact national, state and local governance through five sessions. Each session will include accompanying “pre-reading” materials and will end with a “Call to Action” to advocate for state and federal legislation to help address these critical issues.

The first session is on voting rights. This important first session will lay the stage for the entire series. We will explore the history of the Voting Rights Act, attempts to dismantle the legislation, including the impacts of Shelby County v. Holder (2013), recent voting restrictions and solutions to move forward and ensure every person has a voice.

Please note that this event is virtual.Virtual Event (by computer or phone)
