January Combined Meeting

January Combined Dinner Meeting

Our January meeting will include a Speaker on the 2020 U.S. Census and Our annual Program Review.

Note the location change for this dinner meeting.

The 2020 U.S. Census:

Every 10 years the U. S. Constitution requires the government to count everyone living in the country. Census results help determine how billions of dollars of federal funding will flow to states and communities. The results mandate how many Congressional seats each state will receive in the House of Representatives.
Because the country is severely polarized between political parties and about many issues including immigration and health care, the census has become a source of controversy. Our speaker will explain how the census will be conducted and what efforts are being made in Colorado to encourage census participation.

League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties Program Review:

Following the presentation and discussion of the census we will turn our attention to a review of LWVUS and LWVADC program positions. To expedite this review, we'll encourage members to review these program positions in advance and come prepared to identify those positions they would like to see updated or dropped.

The January Voter will include more information on this program. It will include links to LWVUS program positions and LWVADC positions for your review prior to the meeting.

We will also have an opportunity to recommend new studies and suggest program topics for the 2020-2021 LWVADC year..

All current and prospective members are invited to attend any unit meetings.

For more information, contact Sonya Pennock at 303-794-0430, email.
