News from the League of Women Voters, St. Cloud Area (LWVSCA)

LWVSCA members had a busy, exciting summer participating in community events, including riding in parades and tabling at the Juneteenth celebration and the Promise Neighborhood STREAM graduation on August 12. Looking ahead, we will attend Pride in the Park on September 16 and be in the St. Cloud Library lobby on September 19 to observe National Voter Registration Day. We are answering questions about newly adopted voting regulations regarding 1. automatic voter registration when obtaining state issued IDs (option to opt out); 2. preregistration of 16- and 17-year-olds; and 3. and restoration of voting rights for ex-offenders living in their communities. 

Summer Planning: At our Summer Planning meeting on July 13, we identified topics for monthly meetings during the upcoming year. Over the next three months, we will address Disability Rights, Regulation of Artificial Intelligence, and the Upper Mississippi River Watershed. A description of the upcoming month will be found here when available from the presenters. 


"Disability Rights: Challenges and Opportunities"

We will discuss challenges faced by the community of people with special needs. Joining us will be Anne Redetzke, LSW, Community Coordinator for Midstate Region, The Arc Minnesota. The Arc Minnesota promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports them and their families in a lifetime of full inclusion and participation in their communities. We will learn about the legislative priorities of advocates for disability rights and approaches to working with legislators and local public officials in addressing these rights.
