Event description

Description

"Eighty percent of success is showing up." Woody Allen

Showing up IS the hardest part. Let's make it easy by meeting to talk about something we all know and care about: Improving politics & governance in 2017. Show up to our second Sips & Civility meet-up. Let's end 2016 on a bright note--with stronger community relationships and budding activism.

This is a welcoming and friendly space to talk about reactions to politics. We'll share what we know, learn from others, and try to understand what we can do to improve the democracy we live in. And, we'll do it with the thoughtfulness and experience of the League of Women Voters, a 96 year old organization that never supports/opposes candidates/parties.

If you want to DO something about...
-Gerrymandered districts
-Low Voter Turnout
-Voter misinformation
-Money in Politics
-Removing the Burdens for everyday people to running for elected office
-Making sure we all have an Equal Voice
-Out of Balance of Power
-Empowering Women to get Involved politically, Then join us!
