TO ALL LEAGUE MEMBERS

SAVE THE DATE – April 28

The League of Women Voters of Northern Nevada is pleased to announce our annual membership meeting. We will be meeting at the Western Nevada College in Carson City, Aspen Bldg., Carson Nugget Hall, on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at 10 a.m.

We are excited to announce our keynote speaker will be Michael Willden, Governor Sandoval’s Chief of Staff. Mike will talk to us about the upcoming 2019 Legislative Session, what he sees in Nevada’s future regarding health (especially mental health and the opioid crisis), and other relevant issues.

At our meeting we will sign up for the areas of interest in which we each want to participate, and we will define our priorities for the coming year. We will also elect officers for the coming year and I want to stress the nominations are NOT closed. If any of you have interest in any of the offices listed on the nominations report, please contact us immediately by replying to this e-mail.

Lunch will be served. There is no charge, but if you would like to donate, $10 is recommended. Membership dues will be payable for the coming program year – May 1, 2018 to April 30, 2019. Bring your checkbooks! (If you have just recently joined in the past couple months at the full rate, we consider your dues already paid for next year.)

For our new members, a long-time Leaguer will present “Introduction to League” and we will establish a date for a special meeting with our new members for more in-depth orientation.

Our membership has grown this past year and we want to welcome all of you to our league. Come help us make a more perfect democracy. We need you.  

Please save the date – April 28 – and RSVP so we know how many lunches to plan for. With such an important guest speaker you may want to bring a guest or two. Please do. GUESTS ARE WELCOME.

League of Women Voters Condemns White Supremacists in Charlottesville
 
Washington, DC - League of Women Voters president Chris Carson issued the following statement following the horrific acts by white supremacists in Virginia this weekend:
"Yesterday the world watched in horror as white supremacists gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia. There is no place for hatred and violence in our democracy and all leaders must condemn these acts of domestic terrorism. We must send a strong message that while the freedom of speech and the freedom of assembly are some of our most cherished rights and must be protected, those rights do not extend to what we witnessed yesterday. The League of Women Voters stands in solidarity with the victims of violence in Charlottesville and against white supremacism."
