September & October Chock-Full of Events   

oak leaves iconPlease mark your calendars:  September will feature two events for our members, the Birmingham Mayoral Candidates Forum on September 18 at 7:00 and a member meeting at the Cantina at Pepper Place on September 27 at 6:00.  The member meeting at the Cantina has been a popular event and so we are continuing it.  The Cantina meeting has been our traditional member-bring-a-friend/future member.  Plan to round up several friends for an evening of socializing with others who care about the community.

In October we will begin our first study, Immigration.  Sarah McDonald will lead us in a study begun by the National League but with some local information added.  You may get a head start on the information by going to www.lwv.org and selecting Immigration Study.  Download the information.  There is a fair amount of excellent papers to read.  You will want to read the Immigration 101 the Basics and then the Background Papers.  As always our studies result in lively discussion and are an opportunity to engage in dialogue with other intelligent people focusing on the facts of the issue.
