Protests over police killings and the continued COVID-19 pandemic plus the turmoil of an approaching Presidential election have dominated the news. How we respond is a very personal decision. As League members, our focus on encouraging informed voting will be a big part of our lives for the next 4 months. Opportunities to help out will be sent to you often, so please be ready to serve whenever you are able.
 
The National League of Women Voters and the LWV California have sent us word that the League is supporting protests against police brutality and racism and we are encouraged to display the League logo and name at these events. If you want to wear a LWV t-shirt and don’t own one yet, contact me. I have lots of them!
 
Finally, I wish you all a healthy and restorative summer. Being careful and wearing masks are going to be part of our lives for a long time yet. And I hope you will attend our July 14th webinar with Registrar Michael Vu and learn all about how our County is handling mail ballot and in person voting. You are going to be amazed!
