    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.

  • Coffee in Common

    March 7, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
    Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum, 2240 9th Ave S, St. Petersburg, FL 33712, USA

    Coffee in Common is a monthly series co-hosted by the The St. Petersburg Alumnae Chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and League of Women Voters of the St. Petersburg Area.

    These free and public events are for thoughtful, open-minded white women and women of color concerning the prescient issues of the day, to include: white privilege, racism, and white supremacy. This series seeks to explore the intersection of politics and race by educating audiences about history, lived experience, and facilitating important, and often uncomfortable, discussion about race.

    Coffee will be provided to participants as they learn about the monthly topic. Following the presentation, facilitators will guide discussion on the topic, its relevance in today's world, and honest conversations about the deeply-rooted effects of institutional and systemic racism in our community.

    It is through open-minded, free, and safe discussions among women and the community that we can forge forward together in the struggle with knowledge and power.

  • Food Politics Meeting

    Rollin' Oats Market, 2842 Dr M.L.K. Jr St N, St. Petersburg, FL 33704, USA

    JOIN US for the LWVSPA Food Politics (FKA Plant Power) Action Team.

    This year, our primary goals are to educate people about the impact of their food choices on the corrupting influence of money in politics, personal health and environmental impacts; to find like-minded people and organizations, to empower individuals to take personal action, and perhaps most importantly, to have fun and eat good food. In this meeting we will develop our action plan, talk about our budget and get started!

    Please RSVP to Julie Kessel at Julie.Kessel@Cigna.com so we can make sure we have enough space and healthy snacks!

    You may not know this, but this is a BIG DEMOCRACY issue!
    Food and politics are good ole’ buddies.

    Think about this…
    The healthcare and pharma lobbies want you to think that drugs and devices are the answer to your medical woes
    The energy lobby wants you to think that they are for renewable sources of energy
    The Agribusiness lobby wants you to think they are for sustainable farming and humane animal consumption
    .
    And they pay a LOT of special interest money to keep you thinking you have limited personal power to take control of your health, carbon footprint, and environment.
