Upcoming Events

Oct. 27: Mapping Michigan’s FutureRegister here

The event will focus on the redistricting plans for the state. We will begin with a presentation from longtime demographer Kurt Metzger, who will describe the population shifts in the state, especially from 2010 to 2020. He will be followed by one of the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting commissioners, who will describe how those population changes are reflected in the commission’s proposed district maps.

This event will be very timely: MICRC’s deadline for drawing the maps is Oct 11 and then the commissioners go on the road for public comment. On Oct. 20, they will be at the TCF Center in downtown Detroit for a public hearing.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy

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.
