Making Democracy Work

League Education and Advocacy Day (LEAD)

Making Democracy Work Across the State and at the Statehouse

Join Us on Jan 28th for LEAD

Make Democracy Work at LEAD 2017

LWVSC's Leadership for Education and Advocacy Day for 2017 has been designed to work with LWVSC's 2017 Convention around the theme Making Democracy Work. While Convention will primarily focus on how the League makes democracy work within the League as an organization and how we work with each other to support our country's democracy, LEAD will focus on how we make democracy work through advocacy at the statehouse and education in the community.

Join fellow League members on January 28, 2017 from 9 am to 3 pm at The South Carolina Education Association (421 Zimalcrest Dr. Columbia) to learn about how the League in South Carolina has worked across these lines in the past, how we are working today, and how we need to work in the future.

Lynn Teague will get us ready for the new legislative session and the League's Making Democracy Work campaign.  Patrick Dennis, Speaker of the House's Counsel and former Chief Counsel of the House Judiciary Committee, will share his years of insight on how the SC Legislature works.  Amelia Thompson, Staff Attorney for the South Carolina Environmental Law Project will share the latest on natural resource advocacy in South Carolina, and we will still have plenty of time for a program planning and idea sharing session among League's looking for Make Democracy Work programing and common ground issues.
