Civic Education and Participation event
SAIL (Shepherdstown Area Independent Living). Demographics & selected discussion topic(s) from “Where have the Voters gone?”. NOTE: SAIL brown bag gatherings are closed to public audience, although members may invite guests.
The Civic Education & Participation Roundtable (CEP) was a concept collaborated on last December by the League of Women Voters of Jefferson County in conjunction with Ray Smock and Jay Wyatt of the Byrd Center for Legislative History and Education. The CEP was shortly joined by members from the NAACP, Shepherd University Lifelong Learning, and representatives from all four parties recognized in WV: Republican, Democratic, Mountain, Libertarian.
The Defined Mission Statement is to:
• Provide venue and informational review of issues pertinent to citizens and voters.
• Encourage greater civic participation via public gatherings which encourage discussion and participation.
• Include educational, non-partisan and partisan participants as resources.
