LWVGC Programs

2012: Making Democracy Work

This year's event was a great success with 85 people in attendance and $1000 raised for educational events and activities throughout the coming year!

We would like to extend a hearty thanks to Stan Tiner, Managing Editor and V.P. of the Sun Herald, for his excellent speech! It strongly supported the work of the LWV, promoted volunteer support, and promoted funding of pre-K education as the route to an enlightened electorate to Make Democracy Work in our Gulf Coast community!

Our past events have focused on the following issues:
2011: Transparency in Government
2010: Environmental concerns of the Richton Salt Domes
