What is the difference between a Workshop and a Caucus?
Workshops are planned and hosted by LWVC. A workshop attendee will come away with learning something (issue or task based) that will help their work in League. A caucus is an informal meeting, typically hosted by a local League, at which discussions are held to hear opinions, garner support or opposition, or to gain understanding of an issue, position, or project.

Our own League member Adena Ishii is a member of the LWVC DEI Task Force which is presenting a Workshop on the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Toolkit. There are also workshops on Climate, Effective Conversations, the Homeless Action Policy Toolkit, the LWVC Housing Position, and Criminal Justice Reform among others.

Our own League members Dr. Henry Abrons and Becky Stephens are conveners of the Health Care: Inequities and Opportunities caucus. There also caucuses on Immigration, Environmental Justice, and Volunteer Development among others.
