September Hot Topics Brown Bag Lunch: Meet the Executive Director of the LWV of Ohio. Speaker: Jen Miller, Executive Director of League of Women Voters of Ohio

This month you will get to meet the new Executive Director of the League of Women Voters of Ohio. Jen grew up in a small town here in Ohio. She came to the LWV from the Sierra Club, where she'd been since 2008. For nearly twenty years she's worked with diverse communities to promote social and environmental justice through positions with Columbus Parks and Recreation, King Arts Complex, Global Gallery, and OSU. Miller earned her Master's in Arts Policy, Education and Administration, a program of the John Glenn School of Public Affairs. She is also a graduate of the US Department of Energy NREL Leadership Academy. Inspiring others to participate in civic engagement is her deepest passion. She is a jazz singer and proud mother of one daughter. Come meet Jen, hear her thoughts on where all of us in Ohio League of Women Voters are headed...what are the priorities....and what can we in Delaware County do to help achieve the goals. For more information, contact: Trish Bishop 614-394-8339

12th Annual Community Unity Day. Join the League in a registration event at the Community Unity Day in Delaware sponsored by the Second Ward Community Initiative. This annual event was originally scheduled for September 8th but was rescheduled due to the rain for October 6.

The theme of this years event is: Be the light, wisdom, and hope. The mission is to unite all members of the Delaware Community by striving to network and foster relationships with positive resources available to our community.

It sounds like a perfect fit for the League. We will have a table and tent set up to help register and verify registrations for members of the Second Ward community.

Please let us know if you would like to take a shift. Email the League at: lwvdelawarecountyohio@gmail.com
