The League of Women Voters of Champaign County holds several recurring series of meetings and events. The individual events are listed on the Calendar and on the home page. Please note that a number of regular events are being rescheduled or canceled due to concerns about the new coronavirus.
Topic-focused monthly meetings with a presentation and action, held in members' homes. Information is shared with the group about the topic, followed by a discussion of how we can take action TODAY to garner support for our position. Participants will become familiar with the process of contacting legislators and can continue to act based on their own particular interests. Previous topics include "Abolishing the Electoral College" and "The Fair Tax Amendment."
League Book Club
Meetings to discuss books on current topics related to the League's scope. Previous books discussed were: Fascism by Madeline Albright and The Woman's Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote by Elaine Weiss.
A variety of informational public programs with guest speakers, hosted or co-sponsored by the League. Topics presented so far in 2019 - 2020 include: Census 101, Guns and Society and Ranked Choice Voting.
Kitchen Table Workshop & Social
The League is scheduling monthly meetings to allow for short training sessions on topics like voter registration, using social media, or contacting your legislators. The meetings will also be useful for learning about the League and volunteer opportunities. After each meeting will be a non-obligatory social time when people can stay and socialize with friends or follow up on conversations from the Workshop portion. These meetings are held on the first Sunday of each month.
