The Event and Program Planning Committee meets monthly. We welcome new members and ask that you contact the committee chair Julie Hartford at juliehartford [at] gmail.com if you'd like to join or find out more.
The Event and Program Planning Committee's goal is to plan and execute educational programs, forums, and events that fulfill the purposes of the League and adhere to League guidelines.
The League of Women Voters of Fresno will celebrate Women'e Equality Day on Tuesday, August 27, 5:30 pm at Stone Soup Community Center. Dr. Carole Goldsmith, President of Fresno City College, is this year's honoree. The event will feature wine and cheese, live music, presentations by Angelica Carpenter (Born Criminal) and Brandi Orth (Fresno County Registrar of Voters).
On this day in 1920, the United States of America adopted the 19th amendment to its constitution prohibiting any state or the federal government from denying any citizen the right to vote on the basis of gender.
In August 1973, Congress approved a resolution designating August 26 "Women's Equality Day."
One of the best ways that League members can encourage voter participation is by getting out into the community and letting the public know about all the wonderful resources LWV has to offer! Please join us on August 17 at 10:00 am in our League office for a fun and informative two-hour training on effective tabling. All League members are encouraged to attend as we master the skills needed to get our essential message to the public.
The Voter Services Committee meets on a regular basis to further its mission of voter education and registration. We welcome new members to help us fulfill this important work. If you're interested in joining us, please contact us.
