League of Women Voters presentation

League of Women Voters presentation In-Person

Join the League of Women Voters of Williamson County with Jody Barnwell who is the Co-Lead of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (Williamson Co. Tennessee group). She became a Moms volunteer after the mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida. Jody is an ICU Nurse Practitioner, and lives with her spouse and two children in the Grassland area of Williamson County. Moms Demand Action is a non-partisan, grassroots movement, created to reduce gun violence by passing stronger gun laws, closing legal loopholes and encouraging a culture of responsible gun ownership. Shannon Watts, mother of five, founded this group after the Sandy Hook tragedy. Moms Demand Action has volunteer chapters in every State and is part of Everytown for Gun Safety, which is the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country and has more than six million supporters and 375,000 donors.  

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan volunteer organization that promotes engaged, informed, and active participation in government. Since the creation of the national organization 100 years ago — before women were ever guaranteed the right to vote — its programs and activities have focused not just on voting rights for all citizens, but the broader picture of civic engagement that includes everything from participating in the census to walking into the polling place for the first time. Learning more about public policies and issues allows members of the public to make informed decisions about the matters that impact their communities.

We will EMAIL the ZOOM link to all registrants on Tuesday, November 16th. If you register after Tuesday, when the link is emailed, you will be added to the waitlist. This means you may still attend, but you will get the link closer to the time the program is due to begin. Email sara.schultz@brentwoodtn.gov with any questions.
