LWVA was founded in 1939. We've held a lunch every year on the Saturday closest to February 14 to celebrate the Amherst’s league anniversary.
We used to have lunch in person with a speaker, but of course last February, we went to Zoom. U.S. Rep. James McGovern spoke to us via Zoom from Cape Cod about the January 6 debacle, in which he had a major role.
This year, we will again be bringing our "luncheon" to Zoom. On February 12 at 12:30 p.m., Professor Carrie Baker from Smith College will speak to us on her area of expertise: reproductive rights. She teaches courses on gender, law and public policy; feminist social movements; reproductive justice; and feminist public writing. You can read more about her and read some of her prescient work here.
Registration is required for this event.
