Civil Engagement

Many lament the breakdown of civil public discourse in our society, but feel powerless to change the tenor of the debate.   The League is in a unique position to go beyond our good example of modeling civil discourse. This interest group will examine options, investigate partnerships, and suggest actions to advocate for civility in our community, state and nation.

Health Care

The chair of the group, Jane Dunmeyer gives you an update below on what is currently happening with this group. Check the calendar for dates and times.

The North County LWV Health Interest Committee worked for several months on a presentation and gave it to our members this spring. The topic: "The Road Map to Nursing Home Care and Assisted Living and How to Avoid the Potholes."

We learned at least five new facts about nursing homes and assisted living and how to anticipate issues before they become problems. This includes those who choose to age in their own homes. This information is invaluable for those who are caretakers or who look after friends and relatives. It is a fascinating topic and many questions were asked.

Women's Issues

We're launched! Our new Women's Issues Group WIG is up and sailing and we want you on board!

The mission of our group is to provide members with a forum to discuss and examine issues that affect women, children, and families. We want to use our increased awareness to inform our League and our communities about these issues and develop ACTION strategies to address them.

Contact Nancy Hand or Jackie Stone for more information and check the Calendar and VOTER for meeting dates.
