Latest from the League
The League of Women Voters has a nationwide focus on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) not only in our Leagues but also in our society. With that in mind, we have established our DEI Movie Club to give us a venue to consider our systems and interactions from a variety of perspectives.
Our first movie is 13th, named for the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution. The plan is to watch the movie at your convenience - it's available at the Spartanburg County Public Libraries, on YouTube, and on Netflix (for subscribers). Check out the links below.
We'll have a lively discussion beginning at 7 pm on Zoom based on a discussion guide you can download here.
"Filmmaker Ava DuVernay talks about her new documentary, 13TH, which explores the history of race and the criminal justice system in the United States. The film's title refers to the 13th Amendment." Excerpt from NPR's All Things Considered on 12/17/2016.
