Making Democracy Work

League Education and Advocacy Day (LEAD)

Making Democracy Work Across the State and at the Statehouse

Join Us on Jan 27th for LEAD 2018, our state government advocacy preparation day in Columbia.

Holding SC Government Accountable

League Education and Advocacy Day is one of the League of Women Voters of SC's two big education and advocacy events each year.

2018 will be better than ever with so much to discuss at the state level and so many local redistricting events to share. Mark January 27th on your calendar from 10 am until 2:30 pm. We will return to The South Carolina Education Association building at 421 Zimalcrest Drive in Columbia

Lynn Teague will be back to get us ready for the new legislative session. Laura Hart, one of the attorneys who argued the Abbeville case, will bring us the latest news of the status of our poorest districts and the legislative (non)response to the state Supreme Court. Lynn Teague will do double duty by regaling us with the war stories of the V.C. Summers nuclear plant and the Base Load Review Act and the quagmire of regulatory agencies to deal appropriately with this case of mismanagement. Matt Saltzman, a Clemson League member, mathematician, and trained expert witness on redistricting, will bring us up to speed on new developments in redistricting. We will also have time for local Leagues to share their progress on redistricting and other matters.

State League has offered to pay mileage at 17 cents per mile for one car from each local League. Ready to register?
