Let Your Voice Be Heard!
July is the time of the year when we begin planning our monthly programs. To have an effective slate of programs, we need to hear from our members. Susie Raye will lead a program planning meeting and we want your input on program topics and speakers.
Topics suggested at the annual meeting include immigration, civil discourse, local transportation issues, and Proposition 13 reform.
We also need your feedback on locations and times for meetings that meet the needs of our members and the public. The Silicon Valley Foundation is a great venue for our afternoon meetings, and we will continue to use it. However, for the people who cannot come on a weekday afternoon, we want to explore other alternatives.
If you cannot attend the meeting, please email your ideas to Susie Raye at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us hear what you are passionate about!
For directions, see the calendar.
If you're looking for a way to make a positive difference, join the Observer Corps! Observers keep elected and appointed officials on notice; they let them know someone is watching how decisions are being made. Experience has shown the importance of the League being present to watch--and to take action when necessary!
Read more about the work of the observer corps and see how you can participate. See page 5 of the July Voter.
Contrary to other states' efforts to limit the opportunity to vote, California is expanding it. The > enacted in 2016 will make voting more convenient and accessible. Beginning in 2018, all registered voters in participating counties will receive their ballot in the mail. The voter will have three choices for how to vote.
