What Kind of Talk Does Democracy Need?

League members and the public are invited to join this discussion on Tuesday, September 16th in San Marcos.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, participants at the League of Women Voters North County Fall Kickoff spoke volumes when they visually conveyed what civil dialogue should include in their photos below. Join the dialogue!

A Successful Kickoff for the Election Season

Making Democracy Work: Tom Reeser, Executive Director of KOCT, North County's Community Television Channel and attendees at the League of Women Voters North County Fall Kick-off choose their words carefully at the Dove Library. The public was invited to pick the words that "spoke" to them about the Kind of Talk Democracy Needs.

Of course the refreshments in the courtyard were stellar as they always are at a League event. Participants explored the many opportunities to participate in our League activities this year, including Voter Service activities for September and October, the Book Club, the Civil Discourse study group, our Observer Corps, and the Speakers Bureau. A plug was made for Smart Voter, LWV California's comprehensive site for candidate and ballot issue information all voters need to make an informed vote.

You are always welcome to join us. Educating voters is a noble pursuit.

Promoting Community Conversations


LWV North County San Diego is actively working within the San Diego region to promote civil community conversations.  The League's efforts in civil discourse, which began in 2011, has led to a powerful affiliation with the leading academic institutions in the area, the San Diego Foundation's Center for Civic Engagement and the Kettering Foundation.

Pictured above is the cohort who just returned from their latest training session in Charleston, West Virginia. Our members, Martha Cox and Mary Thompson, have been ably representing us as members of this cohort.
