AAUW and League of Women Voters Present:

Examining the November 2022 California Ballot Initiatives

Thursday, October 20, 2022

6:00 – 8:00 PM

Greenbrook Clubhouse,
300 Greenbook Drive, Danville

Speakers:  Sue Brandy and Janet Hoy
Diablo Valley League of Women Voters  Pros & Cons Team

Join the American Association of University Women’s Danville-Alamo-Walnut Creek branch and the League of Women Voters of Diablo Valley in an informative presentation of the pros and cons related to our 2022 ballot measures.  A presentation by the speakers will help us sort through the latest array of initiatives.

This year, more than ever, we need to prepare for this critical election before we cast our ballots. California is facing unprecedented challenges to our democracy, not to mention the public health and economic crises. As voters, we must consider critical issues such as systemic racism, homelessness, rebuilding a crumbling infrastructure, and a wide range of measures on this year’s ballot.

This discussion offers a look behind the slogans to better understand the ballot measure opportunities and their consequences.

The event begins at 6:00 PM with a short time for socializing as we reconnect with each other in our first all-member meeting of the year, immediately followed by the League of Women Voters program.  Join us to reconnect with your AAUW friends, meet members you may now know, and learn about the critical issues on our November ballot.

Please join us and click here to RSVP.
