Voter Disenfranchisement - Networking meeting. Laws are being passed across the nation that disenfranchise voters and create road blocks making voting more difficult. The LWVUS is very concerned about this; consequently, the National League has chosen Protecting Voting Rights and Legislative Redistricting as its top priority for the coming year. In addressing this issue Libby Skarin, ACLU, will speak to our group sharing with us about how these laws suppress voters and how South Dakota scores compared to other states. She will present on April 13th at Royal Fork, 4610 W. Empire Place, Sioux Falls. Our meeting time is 11:30 - 1:00, and Libby's presentation will start approximately 12:00 - 12:10.

Take Note: We are meeting at a new venue due to the increase in attendance. Royal Fork is a buffet. Salad and Soup may be purchased for $ 7.59 + drink, and lunch may be purchased for $9.90 + drink.
