November 30, 2017
  • Handmaid Tale Literary Night

    November 30, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Soft Water Studios, 515 22nd St S, St. Petersburg, FL 33712, USA

    Recent events have highlighted the hostile climate girls and women tolerate. Abuse and harassment have become normalized even at the highest levels of government and industry. The sexism and anti-women rhetoric is starting to mirror the dystopian society depicted in Margaret Atwood's novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale."

    Join KEEP ST. PETE LIT and the League of Women Voters of the St. Petersburg Area for this evening of literary appreciation and feminism. Invited writers will present their essays, poems, and other writings that have been inspired by "The Handmaids Tale."

    Now is the time to come together in calling out sexism for what it is. Or else we risk starring in a real-life version of “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

    Handmaid uniforms will be on hand to borrow -- or bring your own red cape and white bonnet.

    This event is a fundraiser for the League and Keep St. Pete Lit.

    Seating is limited. Purchase your ticket now. $10 advance purchase; $15 at the door.

    The Board is initiating quarterly conversations so we can better coordinate across the organization and discuss how we might centralize some functions (e.g. volunteer coordination, communications, branding, advocacy coordination & more) in order for all of us to focus more on making change on the issues and tasks we're passionate about.

    We'd like all action team and program leads to attend these meetings which will tentatively be held quarterly from 5:30-6:30pm on the 1st Tuesday immediately before Board meetings. Board members and team members are always welcome.

    If chairpersons are unable to attend, please send a representative from your team.

  • Democracy 101: A Civic Action Primer, Session #3

    December 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
    SPC - Midtown Campus, 1300 22nd St S, St. Petersburg, FL 33712, USA

    A spirit of activism not seen since at least 2008 is sweeping across America. Motivated by the 2016 election campaign and its outcome, people on both sides of the political aisle are energized to become active in the political process – either to support the policies of the current administration at the national, state or local level, or to oppose them. But how does that work? What can citizens do to make a difference in the political world?

    This is the final workshop in a series of free public workshops presented by the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College and the League of Women Voters of the St. Petersburg Area. Attendees will learn the basics of local government structure, policy-making, and civic engagement.

    REGISTRATION REQUIRED:
