Candid Conversations on Voting Rights & UNIT MEETING.

The Unit Meeting for April has been combined with this Library event. There will be no meal and no cost.

The League of Women Voters-Wichita Metro is working along with a dozen community organizations along with the Wichita Public Library to conduct a series of programs designed to highlight race and ethnicity, particularly in relationship to law enforcement. All events are free and open to the public.

The right to vote is a core freedom in America. However, developments in the electoral process have had an effect on voters, and those changes have racial implications. Micah Kubic, head of the Kansas American Civil Liberties Union, speaks about matters of voting rights on race.

TUESDAY TOPICS: Separation of Church and State.

Americans often hear the phrase "separation of Church and State" when discussing the proper role of religion in American life. Is this the proper understanding of the First Amendment, and if so, how is that carried out today? This month's speakers will be Vickie Stangl, President of the Great Plains Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and Dr. Jamie Finkeldei, Associate Superintendent for the Catholic Schools in Wichita. Join us to learn more about both sides of this important issue.
