League of Women Voters of Newton discusses fair elections on February 28, 7:30 p.m.

Join members of the League of Women Voters of Newton (LWVN) on Thursday, February 28, from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m., at the Durant Kenrick House (286 Waverly Avenue, Newton) as we hear the latest on issues related to fair elections, including voter suppression, gerrymandering, absentee ballots, automatic voter registration, and more, when LWVN hosts Lisa Danetz at our next topic meeting.

Newton resident Lisa Danetz, a public policy consultant for philanthropic foundations, has worked in the field of voting rights, money in politics, and democracy as an expert, advocate, and lawyer for over 15 years. She has focused on improving election administration and increasing the political participation of disfranchised groups within our society through public policy research, litigation, executive and legislative advocacy, and public education. Ms. Danetz is the former legal director of Demos, a New York-based public policy center, and also worked at National Voting Rights Institute.

A question-and-answer session and open discussion will follow Ms. Danetz’s presentation.

RSVPs to info@lwvnewton.org are appreciated!
