Fall Kickoff: Women in Politics

Thursday, Sept. 18
at Glen Ellyn History Center

800 N. Main St.
Glen Ellyn

7:30 p.m.

We kick off the 2014-15 League Season by hearing from Asst. History Prof. Lindsey Patterson of Elmhurst College. Dr. Patterson is going to tell us about the political role women have played in our country before and after winning the right to vote in 1920. We are bound to be in for some eye-opening information.

Also: We plan to have a panel discussion from some local women who have served or are currently serving in various elected positions throughout our community. Should make for some interesting convo!

Open to the public! All are welcome!

The fall kick-off meeting is traditionally a time to welcome back members to Leauge after summer break and start up the new League "Season" with camaraderie and information.

With a study on charter schools, meetings on human trafficking in our community, mock elections in the high schools and a candidate forum looming, Leaguers along with their friends, neighbors and families will be well-informed about the goings-on of our world and society and have lots of opportunities to volunteer and provide community leadership.
