As we approach the end of the program year, and before most summer adventures, please plan to attend our League’s Annual Membership Meeting on June 8, from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm (followed by potluck lunch), at First United Methodist Church Friendship Hall, 621 Tacoma Ave. S. (back entrance). Arrive any time from 9:30 a.m. on for hot/cold drinks, breakfast breads, and conversation. The business meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. Members will receive the Annual meeting booklet by email in mid-May. It will have all the details you need for background and decisions. During the meeting we will provide an update about future dues structure and sharing among the local, state and national Leagues. There will also be a short presentation/discussion on understanding and responding to political polarization—a constant feature of our current civic life. This is a great time to catch up with old friends and welcome new members to the League. And you already know the potluck food will be terrific.

There are hundreds of voters every election whose ballots are rejected and, therefore, not counted. Many of these voters have their ballots rejected in multiple elections. LWVTPC is partnering with Pierce County Elections on a project to resolve some of the ballot rejection issues. Emma White, Education and Outreach Coordinator, with Pierce County Elections is working with us in this effort. The project involves teams of two going to the houses where the voters live. We will talk with the voter about the problem and try to resolve it. Most likely, the problem is the voter‘s signature. Pierce County Elections will provide us with forms for the voter to fill out to resolve the problem. The training will cover canvassing tips, safety protocols, prepared script, and review of the forms. Additional training will be scheduled if needed. The first Doorbelling Day will be June 15th. The plan is to meet at the LWVTPC office for coffee and gathering doorbelling materials. If it works out, we will meet back at the office to talk about what we learned. Additional Doorbelling Days will be scheduled later. If you are interested in participating in this project, please contact Carolyn Edmonds at carolyn54edmonds@gmail.com.

As advocates, we have two paths. On path No. 1, we talk about homelessness the way we always have and get the same results we’ve always gotten: opposition from some, indifference from many, heartburn and anxiety for ourselves, and lack of action or even pushback when it comes to the solutions we know work. On path No. 2, we persuade differently and change the energy of the conversation—getting more people to join us on our journey to justice and more people into the housing they need and deserve. Join Dr. Tiffany Manuel and her special guests, Ann Oliva, CEO of the National Alliance to End Homelessness, and Marisol Bello, Executive Director of the Housing Narrative Lab, in a discussion and Q&A about path No. 2, and leave better prepared for when the cameras go on in your community.

Candidates Nick Brown, Manka Dhingra, and Pete Serrano have confirmed that they will be attending. “The Attorney General position is incredibly important to state government and to Washington citizens,” said LWVWA President Mary Coltrane.
