The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
"Knoxville is one of more than 1000 partners across the country that will be registering voters. We will be working in at least nine locations", said Kim Lauth, League of Women Voters President. The League has become the single-largest-on-the-ground partner of NVRD and plans to outpace previous years' participation with more than 350 Leagues registering voters across the county in September. Local sites include:

WHEN: Tuesday, September 30, 5:30 - 7:30 PM
WHERE: James White's Fort, 205 E. Hill Avenue, Knoxville, 37915
WHY: Wine and Cheese and League Networking
Traditionally this annual event has been an opportunity to introduce prospective members to the League leadership team and the programs, activities and events underway within the organization. With more active volunteers, we can accomplish so much more. So this year officers and committee chairs will be available to talk about their work and will actively recruit committee members from new prospects as well as renewing members.
The event is free. Come for the wine, the good food, and the great conversation about the League, its work and its plans. And please take a moment to invite some friends who would make good ACTIVE League members.
For more information, contact Events Chair, Debbie Sharp at 951-8804 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
