    Join us for the third installment in a three-part "Learn with the League" series on the difficulties voters can experience due to physical limitations, language, and other issues.  Come hear a panel of advocates explore and describe barriers to voting for those aged 18-29 at the online program, "Equity and Accessibility in Voting: Barriers for Young Voters," on Tuesday, October 26, 7:00pm - 8:00pm. 

    As Minnesota’s population grows, the state is becoming more diverse. According to the Center for Information and Research on Civil Learning and Engagement, in the 2020 Election, 65% of Minnesotans aged 18-29 voted. That is up from 2016. Nationally, 52-55% of 18-29 year old voters voted in 2020. For the third of this three-part series, LWVSP welcomes panelists Professor Paul Goren, Chair of the Department of Political Science at the U of M College of Liberal Arts, and voters Jordan Hartman and Grace Reardon.

    In the interest of public health and safety, this will be a virtual event. The event will be available via Zoom and also will be shown on LWVSP's Facebook page.  Interested participants can register on Zoom

    From Macmillan: "The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down explores the clash between a small county hospital in California and a refugee family from Laos over the care of Lia Lee, a Hmong child diagnosed with severe epilepsy.

    Lia's parents and her doctors both wanted what was best for Lia, but the lack of understanding between them led to tragedy. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Current Interest, and the Salon Book Award, Anne Fadiman's compassionate account of this cultural impasse is literary journalism at its finest."
