League of Women Voters of Newton Discussion

July 5 @ 8:27 pm

Join members of the League of Women Voters of Newton (LWVN) as we hear about the latest on issues. These issues relate to fair elections, including voter suppression, gerrymandering, absentee ballots, automatic voter registration and more, when LWVN hosts Lisa Danetz at our next topic meeting.

Newton resident Lisa Danetz, a public policy consultant for philanthropic foundations, has worked in the voting rights. Her fields also include money in politics and democracy. She has been an expert, advocate, and lawyer for over 15 years. Her work has focused on improving election administration and increasing the political participation of disfranchised groups within our society through public policy research, litigation, executive and legislative advocacy, and public education. Ms. Danetz is the former legal director of Demos, a New York-based public policy center, and also worked at the National Voting Rights Institute.

A question and answer session and open discussion will follow after Ms. Danetz’s presentation.

RSVPs to info@lwvnewton.org are appreciated!
