“Things can fall apart, or threaten to, for many reasons, and then there’s got to be a leap of faith. Ultimately, when you’re at the edge, you have to go forward or backward; if you go forward, you have to jump together.”- Yo-Yo Ma

Our May speaker will be Ryan Campbell, Chair of the Tuolumne Country Board of Supervisors and District 2 Representative.

Ryan is back by popular demand after his March appearance was cut very short by a widespread power outage. We are grateful for his willingness to repeat his appearance !

Ryan will be discussing current issues before the BOS and answering any questions we might have about priorities and proposed actions by the Board.

We gladly invite members of the public to join us. Please email Susan Medeiros prior to the meeting at susancmedeiros@gmail.com to ensure access is granted when you join over Zoom.

Members and invited guests will receive an email invitation the week of the meeting.

Note: Members can also access the LWVML calendar on the Members only Event page for the Zoom link and all related meeting materials. 

Take Action - Support HR1 The For the People Act 

Familarize yourself with Talking Points

 

Tell the Senate to support HR1

Make posts to Social Media

Write a Letter to the Editor of your local paper (Union Democrat link here. )

The LWV of the US has taken a strong position in support of HR1, the For the People Act, and has encouraged all Leagues to participate in promoting its passage into law. Please see the League's strong statement of support below. Click this link to inform yourself about this critical act and its importance to our mission of defending democracy. Then, we hope you will be moved to click the links to the left and take one of more actions in its support

“We need HR1 now more than ever. The 2020 election saw the largest voter participation in our country’s history. But since November, we have seen hundreds of restrictive voting bills introduced by state legislatures in more than 40 states around the country. These bills seek to limit the voices of voters, particularly Black and brown voters, who voted in record numbers last year. Now is the time to expand voter access, not restrict the constitutional right to vote. HR1 will protect voters and help to build a fairer and more inclusive democracy. 

“We applaud the House for passing the For the People Act, and we urge the Senate to do the same.”   

 

Virginia Kase, League of Women Voters of the United States CEO
