Bay Area League Day

Bayarea League LogoEvery year the League of Women Voters of the Bay Area holds an educational event which is usually the highlight of the year. This year it is again a virtual meeting and will be held Saturday March 9th, 10:30am to 1:00pm. The theme is Finding Solutions Connecting the Dots: Regional Health Equity and Inequities.

League Day 2024 focuses on creating healthy communities and the inter connections of health and policy. Experts will define the interrelationship of social, economic, education and healthy living, and discuss solutions to Bay Area health equity and inequities. Speakers will discuss the right to a clean and healthy environment where communities can live, work, learn, play and thrive. They will explore the impact of housing affordability and stability on health, and the environmental impact on health, exposure to toxins, and location exposure impacting communities of color.  They will examine the learning environment, the physical and mental health well-being of students from cyber bullying to suicide and counselors.

Guest speakers include State Senator Aisha Wahab (District 10), state Chair of Public Safety and Health Committees, committed to advocacy work and legislation addressing housing affordability, civic engagement, education and economic inequality. She is joined by Dr. Mary Ann Dewan, Santa Clara County Superintendent of Schools, and representatives from housing, health, and environment problem solvers.
