Once invisible to the public, election workers are at the center of an ongoing public debate about the integrity of our democracy. By chronicling the 2020 experience of election administrators in Rhode Island, No Time to Fail takes us behind the scenes to witness the perspective of these essential workers. From hand delivering ballots to people’s homes, to weathering the brunt of confusion and anger, their dedication to the voters is palpable.
The documentary, directed by Sara Archambault and Margo Guernsey, will be shown by PBS stations in October.
LWVCC and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Epsilon Epsilon Omega Chapter sponsored a September 19 voter registration event at Douglass Annex, 804 N Fifth St, Champaign from 11:00 am-1:00 pm and 3:00-6:30 pm.
Each year Welcoming Week provides an opportunity to celebrate our sense of belonging to our community--whether we grew up here, recently immigrated, "never planned to stay this long," or anywhere in between.
Join community friends and partners at free, family-centered events through September 17. Event links can be found on the Welcoming Week page or on Facebook @ynawc. Welcoming Week has something for everyone: celebrations, presentations, ceremonies, game nights, nature walks, and more.
Welcoming Week celebrates the growing movement of inclusive communities that fully embrace immigrants and their contributions to the social fabric of our country.
