In years past, LWVMD has organized a “Day on Capitol Hill” for interested members to visit their Senators and House representatives, and lobby for (or against) some of the current congressional legislation of interest to LWV. This year, all Congressional offices are relying on tele-work and tele-conference, so we are requesting a series of ZOOM meetings for Thursday, May 14.
The exact meeting schedule is still being worked out, and we could never count on meeting with all our Senators and Representatives themselves (fall back has always been meeting with some of their knowledgeable staffers) we are sure we can have meaningful discussions with all offices where we have constituent LWV members who want to be engaged.
This year’s topic is Voting Rights and resources for mail-in ballots, in anticipation of the need for most voters to maintain a healthy degree of “social distancing” quite possibly through the general elections on November 3.
LWVUS has already sent out an “Action Alert” to members on the same topic - Click to Read LWV's Memo to Congress & Click Here to Act Now
*Participants will be briefed by email about the LWVUS topic for advocacy, participating voluntarily.
Please register no later than Friday, May 8!
