A Message From Our President
On behalf of the League of Women Voters of Homewood-Flossmoor Area, I encourage each of you in these important times to fight even harder for our causes, including social justice, civil rights, criminal justice reform, voting rights, and increased access to the ballot box. We can do something about the system, the deeply flawed, unjust, and racist system under which we live. We have to act!! We have a moral and ethical obligation to listen to what the people need, to educate ourselves, to pay attention to our state and national League’s issues briefings, to roll up our sleeves and do what is necessary and just. When the dust settles, and decades have gone by, our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will ask what you did during this most recent Civil Rights movement in our nation. What will your answer entail? I surmise that the League Members will be able to say, “Here is how I fought for justice and a better future for you.”
I encourage each of you to read the statement that the League of Women Voters U.S. issued regarding the Murder of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement.

I want to acknowledge the state legislators, mayors, trustees, aldermen and other elected officials who are able to effect change. We are counting on you.
Thank you to our supporters and donors. We could not do the work we do without your participation, support, and resources. We truly appreciate you.
Barbara A. Hayes, President
League of Women Homewood-Flossmoor Area
LWV-HF Area Annual Meeting!
The LWV-HF Area board has been working hard on plans for our annual meeting, where we will present a new budget and a slate of candidates for open positions on the board.
The LWV-HF area annual meeting will be held virtually on the evening of Thursday, June 11th at 6:00 p.m . Registration for the meeting is required in order to ensure we will have a quorum and will only have members voting.
REGISTER HERE and you will then receive an email with a link to join the annual meeting. The email will include a link to join by laptop, PC, or smartphone. It will also contain a phone number with meeting id # if you need to do call in only. Using a device instead of calling in only is highly encouraged if possible for voting purposes! Please plan to log in a few minutes before 6 to be sure any technical issues are cleared up for our 6pm start time.
Deadline: Registration deadline is Tuesday, June 9th.
ZOOM VIRTUAL MEETING PLATFORM
We are using the Zoom webinar platform for the meeting. That means that those attending will be able to see and hear those who are leading the meeting but will not be on the screen or have the ability to speak using a microphone. The webinar allows for everyone to participate in voting and there is a chat tool that will be used for participants to ask questions or participate in discussion of motions by typing in the chat. Motions and seconds will be made by those who are on the screen and helping in some way to lead the meeting. We will do a short tutorial at the beginning of the meeting so attendees are comfortable with the technology. If you aren't familiar with Zoom, check out this Zoom article for further information.
