This series is made possible by our sponsor:
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan organization that does not support or oppose political candidates and does not work directly with any political party. We do engage in voter registration, provide our community with candidate guides and other civics information, and advocate for good governance, healthy communities, and individual civil rights.
“The League of Women Voters is celebrating our 100-year anniversary in 2020, so we are spending the year uplifting women’s stories and voices in as many ways as possible. The Vegas City Opera’s Voices of Women Concert Series aligns perfectly with League’s commitment to telling the stories of all women, so we are proud to be a sponsor, stated Sondra Cosgrove, President of the League of Women Voters of Southern Nevada”
The League of Women Voters is celebrating our 100-year anniversary in 2020 with a campaign to end partisan gerrymandering. In June 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that federal courts can no longer accept partisan gerrymandering cases, so good governance advocates are taking the fight against gerrymandering to the state level. The League of Women Voters of Nevada, therefore, filed a constitutional amendment ballot question to move redistricting from our legislature to a transparent redistricting commission. We believe voters should select their elected officials, elected officials should not select their voters. Please contact us if you would like to support our effort to keep gerrymandering out of Nevada.
Three concerts coming in 2021 celebrating the voices of women.
