Did you miss our Oct. 22 program, Weaving the Fabric of Diversity? Our speaker – Dr. Alexander Riegel, minister of the Grosse Pointe Unitarian Church – shared the benefits of articulating a positive vision of diversity, which should serve as the foundation of a new understanding of our common humanity. He also gave examples of how historical narratives have determined the current state of our society and the future state of our society.
The program was sponsored by the League’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee and is a result of the partnerships the LWV is forming with various community organizations to promote social justice. A video recording is available on our YouTube channel.
Thanks to our many volunteers who assisted with absentee ballot mailing in Grosse Pointe Farms on Sept. 22.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The League of Women Voters, in both its values and practices, affirms its belief and commitment to diversity and inclusion. LWV recognizes that diverse perspectives are important and necessary for responsible and representative decision making, and subscribes to the belief that diversity and inclusion are fundamental to the values it upholds.
Inclusiveness enhances the organization’s ability to respond more effectively to changing conditions and needs, and therefore, LWV will in both principles and practices promote the inclusion in participation in any activity of LWV all persons whatever their gender, race, socio-economic status, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin or disability.
