Maui Will Get Out the Vote

The Maui At Large Unit has been busy, having hosted our fifth annual Women's Rights and Human Rights all-day conference in March, bringing together several different women's associations. There were six panels, plus videos on women's right to vote, and on domestic violence. In August we sponsored a Women's Health Fair.

We are sponsoring a 1 + 1 Campaign that we plan to use for the next election. The graphics are shown below, with the "1" registered voter getting "1" non-registered voter registered, and later, one voter getting another to vote.

"be silent no more"

Our "At Large" Unit. which we hope soon to convert to a state chapter of the League, meets the first Tuesday of each month. Plans for the next several months are as follows:

  • September 7, Jan Roberts of Earth Charter USA will speak at Maui Community College. The League will have membership and informational materials available.
  • October (date and place to be announced), Kevin Martin, Peace Action, will speak on peace and women's movements for justice
  • November (date to be announced) Maui Community College will host a forum on different political parties and how young people can get involved. League will have membership and informational material available.
  • November 19. Hawaii Social Forum. Joshua Cooper is coordinating this event for Maui County. The Maui at Large Unit will be assisting.
