Civil Liberties 2022 Wrap Up
The Civil Liberties Team chose in September to focus on women’s reproductive justice and health care. We communicate and individually attend the LWVCO Reproductive Justice Task Force (RJTF) zoom meetings.
In October we presented What Do Reproductive Rights Mean to You with League member Sharon Davis as our speaker.
In November we helped organize and promote the showing of the documentary The Janes at the Lyric – it was well attended by League members and members of the community. Sharon Davis, Civil Liberties team member, vice-president of LWVCO, and convener of the RJTF, introduced the film and shared resource information for acting.The Janes is available for free on HBOMax. It is worth a month’s subscription for this two-hour documentary about the actions of brave young women in the 60s and 70s in Chicago.
On November 29 and December 6, the Civil Liberties Team members attended either of meetings to discuss Without Apology: The Abortion Struggle Now by Jenny Brown. This small book reviews the basics of abortion, the history, and includes strategies for action. It is both readable and informative. These two discussions were “in-house” for Civil Liberties Team members. However, if other LWVLC members are interested in hosting or participating in a discussion of the book, contact Jane Everham email@example.com
On December 14, we held an open team meeting to learn about the Loveland Justice League and new organization created to address public safety for individuals with Disabilities.
The Civil Liberties Team will meet on April 11 at 1:30pm on Zoom. If you would like to join this team or just sit in on our meeting to check us out, please contact Jane Everham at firstname.lastname@example.org
