Get Registered! Get Educated! Get Out and Vote!
Come celebrate the League with the year's first special event, Sunday, September 7, 2014, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Dove Library in Carlsbad. (See the Calendar for directions)
Enjoy refreshments in the courtyard while exploring the many opportunities to participate in our League activities this year. Tables will feature information about Voter Service activities for September and October, the Book Club, the Civil Discourse study group, our Observer Corps, and the Speakers Bureau.
The highlight of the afternoon will be our featured speaker, Tom Reeser of KOCT, one of two non-profit television channels in San Diego County. Tom Reeser has been the Executive Director of KOCT for 24 years. He is also an independent filmmaker, and was recently inducted into the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Silver Circle recognizing his over 25 years of contribution to the television industry. KOCT has received an award for its commitment to Human Rights and for the Best All-Around Public Educational and Community Media. Tom, an inspiring speaker, is looking forward to meeting all of you and answering your questions.
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.
