May 5, 2018: Everyday Activism
Our breakfast and annual meeting celebrated the power of everyday activism. Our featured speaker, Elizabeth Arnold, shared how small, individual efforts can create big change.
Elizabeth is one of the founders of Stand Up Blue Valley, a grassroots organization that informs residents about legislation affecting public schools and documents how elected officials are voting.
LWVJoCo serves Johnson County, Kansas, a part of the greater Kansas City metro area. We are a community-based organization focused on engaging citizens in the voting process. We believe hands-on work safeguards democracy which leads to civic improvement. Members gain knowledge and experience, discover new interests through the study and discussion of timely and important issues and topics. As you meet others who share your interests, you will make professional contacts and develop lasting friendships.
Through participation in League activities, members contribute valuable services to the community. The League does not endorse or oppose candidates or political parties.
