Featured speakers are Laura Marko, who served in the Navy as a communications specialist and was deployed in Iraq, and Heather Nystrom, a mental health specialist for the Army in South Korea. Both continue to work on behalf of female veterans.
This highly informative program will include a question and answer period, and is open to the public.
But that did not complete the League's work and our work is still not done today. Barriers to the ballot box might look different today, but threats to our democracy remain. Nearly 100 years after the League was founded, we continue to hold fast to the belief that our nation is at its strongest when the voices of all voters are heard. "There will never be a true democracy until every responsible...adult in it, without regard to race, sex, color or creed has his or her own...voice in government," said Chapman Catt.
