Civic Reflection on Voting Rights and Race
Member Event: Civic Reflection Dialogue on Race & Voting Rights
Wed., March 30 6:30-8pm via Zoom
We invite LWV members to begin the journey of talking not only about racism, but about how our civic values intersect with race during a civic reflection gathering on March 30 from 6:30-8pm. Led by Dountonia Batts (Peace Learning Center) and Quay Kester (Evoke Consulting), we will examine the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and use it to unpack not only history, but our underlying beliefs and values around race and voting.
Dountonia and Quay are certified civic reflection dialogue facilitators who, outside their day jobs, serve as facilitators for Spirit & Place’s Powerful Conversations on Race series. They will lead us in a participatory gathering where everyone is expected to have their cameras on (at least to check in) and contribute to the dialogue. This is NOT a lecture, panel discussion, or training session. It is a dialogue where intentional and focused participation— via laptop or tablet rather than on-the-phone and on-the-go—is best.
As the LWVUS and its chapters work toward creating a more equitable organization, we offer this gathering for members only rather than the wider public so that we, as League members, can better tackle these issues within our own organization.
Registration is required by March 25. You can register by clicking here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. A Zoom link reminder will also go out 24-48 hours prior to the gathering.
