Learn the Issues — Then VOTE


UU St. Pete and the League of Women Voters are co-sponsoring a series of educational forums to prepare you to vote knowledgeably in the upcoming November election.

The first, Local Control of Education and Restorative Practices for Students, was held on October 2. Presentations were given by the League's Education Co-Chair iris Yetter, and our own Pat Fling and Rev. Karen Day. Event moderator was Karen Coale. If you could not attend — pick up the very informative handouts on the VOTER Table in Gilmour Hall after service.
