Making Democracy Work

Make Democracy Work!

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.

CHARIS, in partnership with LWVSTL and other local activist organizations, will explore four social justice movements - women's suffrage, civil rights, women's rights, and LGBT rights - through song, in an inspirational and empowering performance, Women Rising, April 28 & 29, 8pm at the Missouri History Museum.
The audience is taken on a journey from the parade down Locust Street in September 1916 advocating "Votes for Women" to recent victories of marriage equality and empowerment of transgender persons.  In the last century, there have been many successes and challenges in the pursuit of equality and justice for women. However, we must continue to be heard!
