ST. PAUL, MN (June 1, 2020) – The League of Women Voters St. Paul (LWVSP), with support from the St. Paul Neighborhood Network, are partnering to present “2020 Elections: Protected or Infected?” a free program on Tuesday, June 30, 6:30pm – 8:00pm.
In the interest of public health and safety, this will be a virtual event. The event will be cablecast on LWVSP’s Facebook page, as well as SPNN channel 19. Interested participants can register on the LWVSP website, (www.lwvsp.org). The program will be recorded for future viewing.
As Minnesota finds itself dealing with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the League is working to ensure that all voters have an opportunity to learn how this has affected legislation this session, especially regarding bills addressing voting and elections. The event will feature a discussion between Nick Harper, Civic Engagement Director for the League of Women Voters Minnesota, and Junior Alvados of Minnesota Voice, a coalition of non-profit organizations working toward permanent change in racial, social, and economic justice by increasing civic engagement and voter participation across the state, especially focused in underrepresented communities. Discussion will include: what bills were introduced in the session; how the pandemic impacted the legislative focus; and what changes are ahead for the August primary and the November general elections.
The League of Women Voters of St. Paul (www.lwvsp.org), celebrating 100 years, is dedicated to informed and active participation of citizens in government. LWVSP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that neither supports nor opposes political parties or candidates.
