Your Voice your vote thumbnail

Voting is one way to voice our opinions, but there is more to being engaged in our community than simply showing up at the polls. To understand contemporary issues and enact positive change in the places we live we need a range of tools and the knowledge of how to use them. Dee Pregliasco, President of the League of Women Voters of Louisville, will lead this six-week Short Course featuring expert guests. Together they will cover topics from education to criminal justice to health and the environment. Come fill your civic engagement toolkit and learn how to be an agent of change in your community.
