Gallup research shows that people who invest in their strengths perform better and are more engaged in their work. This two-part workshop will enable you to discover and define your strengths, using the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment, and then guide you through creating an action plan to apply your strengths to a personal or professional goal. This session will use a combination of instruction, partner work, and individual reflection.

UnCivil War: U.S. Elections under Siege, a documentary on voter suppression

07:00 pm to 08:30 pm on Sep 15
Zoom. Please register for the Zoom session at www.lwv-bmc.org/films

The League of Women Voters of Bloomington-Monroe County joined by the NAACP, UU Church Racial Justice Task Force, Monroe County Women’s Commission, and Trinity Episcopal Church, is offering a screening of the documentary “Suppressed: The Fight to Vote.” It shares personal accounts from Georgia voters who faced deliberate voter suppression in the 2018 midterm election, including voter purges, missing absentee ballots, polling place closures, extreme wait times, insufficient or faulty equipment, and a host of voter ID issues. Such tactics are not unique to that state. The documentary will be followed by a Q&A session with Nicole Browne, Monroe County Clerk; Hal Turner, Monroe County Election Board Chair; and Mary Ann Williams, League of Women Voters.
