LWVCC Teams Again With Moms Demand Action
On Tuesday, May 29th, LWVCC will team up again with Moms Demand Action to discuss the organization's intiative, The Everytown Survivor Network.
The Everytown Survivor Network, an initiative of Moms Demand Action, exists for the main purpose of bringing survivors of gun violence together to build a community of support. These survivors say it is a powerful experience to meet, share their personal stories, and advocate alongside other survivors because they understand and care for one another in a unique way.
Hear more about this organization and share the stories of local residents who have lost a family member or a friend to gun violence. The spokesperson for the group is Janice Walker, the lead in this initiative. She will be accompanied by Pastor Patricia Havis of St. Luke's of Champaign and by Vivian Biggers Tuell. Everyone is invited to attend the meeting on Tuesday, May 29, at 6:30-7:30 in the Lewis Auditorium at the Urbana Free Library.
Join LWVCC for its annual meeting. Every year, in lieu of a general lunchtime meeting, the League hosts a May meeting in which the board is elected, the budget is approved, and members and prospective members have an opportunity to mingle and network.
This year, we are very excited to have Professor Suja Thomas from the University of Illinois College of Law joining us to speak about the effect of a lack of juries nationwide on our judicial system. To learn more about Suja, check out her website: http://sujathomas.com/
All are welcome, so please invite friends to come learn more about League!
