Update: LWVDDH MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS

May 29, 2020

Dear Members and Supporters

I hope you are all taking care during this stressful time.  The LWVDDH Board has been working hard to continue our mission as are our partners at the national level (www.lwv.org) and at the state level (www.lwvmi.org) during this public health emergency.

One of the many activities we are working on is migrating to a new website called MyLO – My League Online https://lwvc.org/mylo.  The new website is maintained by the California LWV and is utilized by over 250 local LWV leagues which share content with the LWVUS and state and local leagues.  

Our current website will remain available to you until that time when our new website is up and running. 😊

Also, please visit our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/lwvddh.org

Currently, no in person activities are planned.   Plans are being made to have a virtual annual meeting for our members.  Our online newsletter VOTER and separate focused emails will continue to inform you about updates to voter access and virtual opportunities to participate in civic engagement.

If you are not receiving our newsletter, you can subscribe at link on this main page.

Please take special care during this time and STAY HOME, STAY SAFE.

SAVE THE DATE | August 26, 2020

SAVE THE DATE!!

Wednesday, August 26, 2020

The year 2020 will be a big year for so many things.  Among them is the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Founding of the League of Women Voters in Chicago on February 14, 1920.

We will also be celebrating the passage of the 19th Amendment on August 26, 1920.  Passage of this amendment was the culmination of years of work by our foremothers working for the women’s vote.

In honor of both of these anniversaries, our League of Women Voters Dearborn-Dearborn Heights will be holding a special Centennial Dinner celebration on Wednesday, August 26, 2020.  Our wonderful venue is the Byblos Banquet Center where we celebrated the League’s 95th anniversary in 2015.

Please put this on your calendar and share with your friends.  We hope for a great attendance of members and guests celebrating these two special birthdays.
