Member Discussion Meetings By popular demand, LWV-TSC is starting the New Year with a new series of discussions focused on the issues our membership find most important.
A new program committee selected the topics after considering the results of a membership survey. Local members, with the assistance of invited experts, will lead the discussions. We are inviting all members to come prepared to voice their opinions and hope they will bring other friends who can add to the diversity and depth of the discussions.
Three of the first four of these discussions will take place on the fourth Monday of the month in the Genecov Room beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Coming Topics in the Public Policy Series:
September 28 - Human Trafficking in Texas
Engaging Young Voters
One theme this year will be involving younger voters, whether high school, college, or adults ages 18 - 35, in an effort to imbue in them the passion LWV members have for all that democracy brings—civic life, politics, dialog, voting, having a voice, and making a difference. There is evidence that encouraging life-long civic participation from young people can create long-term change.
January 23, 2013, members will register voters on TJC campus and fielded questions on voting from young voters. Contact Shirley Hightower email@example.com to help in the next campus voter registration campaign
