LWV Meetup: The Art of Protest

Meetups are a way for us to come together to explore, understand and advocate for issues that matter to us.

How, when and why do we protest? When is protest an effective method for affecting change? How can LWV Saratoga County protest and still be a nonpartisan organization? How do we control the message? How do we get media coverage? Is there some action we need to take now?

Making Democracy Work Series

Join us for a series of discussions on the principles of our U.S. Constitution. Spawned from the American Revolution, and rooted in our history, our rights and freedoms are the bedrock of our democracy and protected by the Constitution. Today, we face tests that challenge the fabric of those principles.

Speakers will explore the impact of recent challenges, what the future holds and how we can act to protect our democracy. This is the first in the series, with others to follow. Stand up for our democracy, have your voice heard, be part of the solution.
