The program, “What Voting Means to Me,” is a discussion with members of several local communities that are generally under-represented in the voting arena. At the time of this writing details are still being arranged, but participants will include Sarah Funes, Cal student and Andrew Goodman Foundation ambassador; an NAACP representative; Rev. Kit Novotny, the Young Adult Minister at First Congregational Church of Berkeley United Church of Christ, part of Berkeley Organizing Congregations for Action (BOCA); and a representative from Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency (BOSS), which serves very low income and homeless people.

The panel will open with discussion:
• How do I feel about voting?
• What does voting mean to me?
• Why I am an avid voter or rarely if ever vote?
• What could the League of Women Voters do to help/encourage me and others like me to vote?

Questions from the attendees also will be addressed.
