Voting Matters

The Advocacy and Racial Justice Committee hosted a successful Lunch and Learn at which members of the League of Women Voters presented information on the voting process. Attendees learned about the offices on the local and state level that are up for election, how and where to vote, and why voting does make a difference. City Council Mayor Pro tem Yvonne Johnson talked about close races she and others have had in election seasons and why even a handful of people voting can matter. We have posted the links provided by the League of Women Voters to give you the information you need. Go here: MY VOTE COUNTS!


Memories Preserved
