Making Democracy Work

Democracy is not a spectator sport!

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

GENERAL MEETING -- Health Care -- April 21

Our April 21st meeting will bring us up to date on an issue of great concern to South Carolinians. Sonja Albury-Crandall, a League member and a graduate student in Policy Studies with an extensive background in health care policy, will discuss health care, and affordable health insurance coverage in particular, in South Carolina and around the nation under the Affordable Care Act. The South Carolina League of Women Voters has joined AARP, SC Appleseed, faith-based groups and other organizations in a coalition called Close the Gap SC specifically to advocate for health insurance for the poor. The state board is also recommending that we undertake a study of health care affordability in South Carolina that will help us to be more effective advocates for expanded and affordable coverage.

Conversation at 7:00 p.m. Meeting at 7:30 p.m.
