Join the League of Women Voters of Buffalo/Niagara and the NAACP Buffalo Branch to learn the ins and outs of voting! Girls will discuss the importance of voting, how to become informed voters, and will fill out their own voter registration form! Girls should come ready to discuss 2 to 3 issues that they care about (ex: healthcare, education, climate change, etc). Special guest Judge Lenora Foote-Beavers will talk about jobs in our local government and her journey to becoming a Buffalo City Court judge. Girls will leave knowing what to expect when they go to vote. This is a nonpartisan event designed to increase civic participation and fulfills step 1 of the Democracy badge.
Includes: Girls will receive a voter registration form and Election Voting fun patch in the mail.
Participating girls need to be at least 16 years old.
