Featured Community Event: Project Drawdown presentation "Introducing the Project Drawdown Roadmap: Accelerating Action to Address the Climate Crisis"

Free and open to the public online.

Register here:
https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_XVwMBcovRhy60eBr-TR-CQ

The world now recognizes that climate change is a real and serious issue. But our actions to date are woefully insufficient to solve the problem. How can we get unstuck, catch up, and advance climate action more quickly? In this game-changing 90-minute webinar, Project Drawdown executive director Jon Foley presents research that points to which climate actions we should prioritize—across sectors, timescales, and geographies—to make the most of efforts to achieve drawdown. In addition, Foley will show how recognizing co-benefits of climate solutions that improve health, well-being, equity, and more can help accelerate action. Finally, he will look at the importance of pulling multiple levers to scale climate solutions—including changes in policy, capital flows, business models, technology, and behavior. Learn how you can make the most of YOUR commitment to create a safe climate for future generations and achieve the change we need before it‘s too late.

The United Nations‘ 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual campaign that begins on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs through International Human Rights Day on 10 December.
This year the UN marks the 16 Days under the theme “UNiTE! Activism to end violence against women and girls”, noting these statistics:
1 in 3: More than 1 in 3 women experience gender-based violence during their lifetime.
1 in 5: In 2021, nearly 1 in 5 women aged 20-24 were married before turning 18.
40%: Less than 40 per cent of women who experience violence seek help of any sort.

Violence against women and girls remains the most pervasive human rights violation around the world. A backlash against women’s rights is underway around the world. Anti-feminist movements are on the rise, attacks against women human rights defenders and activists are up, and the legal status of women’s rights is increasingly imperiled in many countries. Regressive new laws are exacerbating impunity for perpetrators of domestic violence, governments are using force against femicide and gender-based violence protestors, and women’s rights organizations are being increasingly marginalized.

Violence against women and girls is preventable. Evidence shows that the single most important driver of policy change is a strong and autonomous women’s movement—making feminist mobilization in the face of anti-rights backlash a literal matter of life and death.

This 16 Days, we’re encouraging everyone to get involved: from amplifying the voices of survivors and activists to supporting women’s organizations and strengthening feminist movements, we can all act to empower survivors, reduce and prevent violence against women and girls, and protect women’s rights.

All League members and their guests are welcome!

The LWV is proud to present a viewing of "Saint Judy" starring Michelle Monaghan, Leem Lubany,
Common, Peter Krause, Alfred Molina and Alfre Woodard. The film, "tells the true story of the heroic, yet
humble immigration attorney, Judy Wood, in a landmark case. Wood represents an Afghan woman who
was persecuted by the Taliban for opening a school for girls and forced to flee her home country. Judy
fights day and night, in and out of court weathering losses and setbacks...while juggling life as a single
mother to her son." The story shows, "a woman who will stop at nothing to advocate for change,
upending unjust laws and saving generations to come."

We look forward to seeing you there and we still recommend the use of masks for everyone‘s safety.

No registration is required, but space is limited. We ask that you RSVP by emailing us with your name and email address to lwvadc.defending.democracy@gmail.com. Please specify MOVIE MATINEE on the email subject line.

The United Nations‘ 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual campaign that begins on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs through International Human Rights Day on 10 December.
This year the UN marks the 16 Days under the theme “UNiTE! Activism to end violence against women and girls”, noting these statistics:
1 in 3: More than 1 in 3 women experience gender-based violence during their lifetime.
1 in 5: In 2021, nearly 1 in 5 women aged 20-24 were married before turning 18.
40%: Less than 40 per cent of women who experience violence seek help of any sort.

Violence against women and girls remains the most pervasive human rights violation around the world. A backlash against women’s rights is underway around the world. Anti-feminist movements are on the rise, attacks against women human rights defenders and activists are up, and the legal status of women’s rights is increasingly imperiled in many countries. Regressive new laws are exacerbating impunity for perpetrators of domestic violence, governments are using force against femicide and gender-based violence protestors, and women’s rights organizations are being increasingly marginalized.

Violence against women and girls is preventable. Evidence shows that the single most important driver of policy change is a strong and autonomous women’s movement—making feminist mobilization in the face of anti-rights backlash a literal matter of life and death.

This 16 Days, we’re encouraging everyone to get involved: from amplifying the voices of survivors and activists to supporting women’s organizations and strengthening feminist movements, we can all act to empower survivors, reduce and prevent violence against women and girls, and protect women’s rights.
