Earl Miller, Director of the Town of Amherst's Community Responders for Equity, Safety and Service (CRESS) will be the next guest in LWVA's Judy Brooks Conversation Series. Register here.

The LWVA’s Racial Justice Committee (RJC) has been meeting bi-monthly since April 2020. We are: Andrea Battle, Lydia de Faveri Spiegal, Rebecca Fricke, Meg Gage, Martha Hanner, Ash Hartwell, Bonnie Isman, Renee Moss, Marcie Sclove, and David Williams.

On March 22, 2021 we held a Zoom Forum of Groups working on racial justice. 185 people attended. This was the beginning of the Amherst Racial Justice Network (ARJN). We have taken more steps to develop ARJN and will see how it all proceeds.

In May 2022, the LWVA Grant committee awarded its first grant, $1000 to the ARHS Restorative Program.
