PFAS: The Everyday, Everywhere Toxin

The statewide Natural Resources Committee has been planning a series of two PFAS-centered webinars, to go along with the ongoing conversations in WI about the issue of PFAS pollution.

Signup and marketing for the first one–a month away on March 12th–is ready! We would love for local Leagues to share this in their networks, and to feel free to add this to their League calendars. I’ve included the signup page link below, as well as the content put into the page for Leagues that want to add the event to their pages. Let me know if you need anything else!

The Politics Industry by Katherine M. Gehl & Michael E. Porter was selected for the LWV-SCV winter book study.

The book addresses the need for political innovation and outlines just what Final Five Voting is and how it could represent a solution to our broken system.

The book study culminated in a presentation to our League Chapter by Sara Eskrich, Executive Director of Democracy Found.
