Discussion Group - CHANGE OF PLANS!
 
We have been offered a great opportunity from the League of Women Voters of Collin County.  So the plans we had for our September 20 Discussion Group (to discuss "A Terrible Statement Unless He Gets Away With It") will be pushed to October.
 
Instead we will attend a webinar sponsored by LWVCollin entitled "How Banning Books Undermines Democracy".
 
Same date:  Tuesday, September 20, 2020
Same time:  7:00pm
 

How Banning Books Undermines Democracy - September 20
We invite you to join us for a Zoom webinar on Tuesday, September 20th at 7 p.m. entitled “How Banning Books Undermines Democracy.” Our event coincides with the American Library Association’s Banned Books Week 2022 and aligns with our Program priority “Making Democracy Work.”

A panel of experts will discuss how library collections are curated, intellectual and academic freedom, censorship, and what we can do to safeguard the freedom to read.

You can register for the program and submit questions for our panelists  at this link.

We are thrilled to be able to participate in the North Texas Giving Day (NTGD) event this year.  Mark your calendars now for Thursday, September 22.  Click here to go directly to LWVRichardson's North Texas Giving Day page.

 

North Texas Giving Day’s goal is to be supportive of nonprofits across the entire DFW region.  Our organization depends on donations from members and friends in order to further our goals of empowering voters and defending democracy.  Please visit NTGD's web page, our Facebook page, and our web page for more information in the coming weeks.

Early giving begins September 1 so you can get an early start on your gift-giving to LWV-Richardson.  And please share this information with your family and friends for their opportunity to help support our goals.
