MEMBER VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties members are asked to volunteer for one of this month's voter registration sessions at U.S. Naturalization Services ceremonies.

Important requirements before registering voters:

Please sign up in advance in order to arrange becoming a certified circulator by contacting Gladys Hodges.

It is required that every circulator re-review the training videos and re-pass the voter registration test each year. The training and test is located online at the Colorado Secretary of State's web site here. It's quick and easy.

Then every circulator should bring a signed training acknowledgment document for 2018 the first time volunteering for voter registration and give the document to Gladys Hodges, who will keep it on file for the year.

April All Member Meeting

All Member Meeting

The League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties April All Member Meeting will feature the topic of Homelessness.

Did you know that Colorado was the third-highest state in nation per capita for homeless families in 2018? According to a report issued by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on the state of homelessness in the United States, 32% of those homeless families with children were not in shelter--considerably higher than the national rate of just under10%.

We may think that relatively affluent Arapahoe and Douglas Counties are shielded from these statistics. This is not the case. There are families trying to shelter in horse stalls and in packing crates in our counties. Douglas County, Cherry Creek, and Littleton School Districts have homeless children in their schools today.

The League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties is embarking on a study of homelessness in our counties. As a kick-off to the study, in April LWVADC will host a meeting to provide more information about homelessness in Colorado.

Michelle Ritchie and Jill Gulotta with the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless will speak about the state of homelessness in our state. The Coalition is a national leader in providing integrated housing, health care, vocational and supportive services, and creating lasting solutions to homelessness in Colorado.

Free and open to the public. Each League member is asked to bring a friend.
