League of Women Voters members have been arrested at White House protests while demanding that Congress pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. Among those arrested was U.S. League of Women Voters President Deborah Turner, MD, JD.
On February 16, 2022 at a noon virtual Community Forum, the Santa Barbara League of Women Voters is hosting three current League of Women Voters presidents from states experiencing voter suppression. Attendees will learn what is being done to fight for voting rights, and what can be done to empower voters and defend democracy.
In this two-part presentation, there also will be a sneak-peek at a new documentary feature-length film produced and directed by Santa Barbara local Beth Pitton-August. “Just the Beginning: A Century of Political Power and the League of Women Voters” explores the past, present and future of women’s political power through the lens of the 100-year history of the League of Women Voters and allied groups.
