Women's Issues Action Team
This team is new and plans to focus on women's and children's affordable, accessible health care. We are working with the local Planned Parenthood to learn about what areas need our attention and advocacy.
We are also planning celebration events for the centennial of the women's right to vote in 2020. So far, we plan to participate in the Azalea Festival parade, and create story boards telling the history of the vote and of the League of Women Voters. We will display the boards around the NHC, BC areas.
