League Education and Advocacy Day. League Education and Advocacy Day is one of the League of Women Voters of SC's two big education and advocacy events each year.

2018 will be better than ever with so much to discuss at the state level and so many local redistricting events to share. Speakers include:

Matt Saltzman - mathematician, trained redistricting expert witness, and Clemson League member will talk about redistricting and math.

Laura Hart - one of the attorneys who argued the Abbeville education case will bring us the latest news of the status of our poorest districts and the legislative (non)response to the state Supreme Court.

Lynne Teague - LWVSC's volunteer lobbyist will regale us with the war stories of the V.C. Summers nuclear plant and the Base Load Review Act and the quagmire of regulatory agencies to deal appropriately with this case of mismanagement as well as offer updates on ethics reform and redistricting bills.

Whether you are a longtime League member or an interested South Carolinian who wants to hold government accountable, LEAD 2018 is for you.

Registration information is available on our LEAD 2018 page
