With a pivotal Election Day around the corner, the League of Women Voters of the United States held a forum on Thursday, October 28, 2010, to discuss the trends that will impact civic participation among young people.
Luncheon address from "An Era of Polarized Politics -- and Does it Matter?" Panelists include Mary Wilson, President, LWV and Marvin Kalb, Senior Fellow, Shorenstein Center, JFK School, Harvard University.
Two interviews on terrorism were conducted by Xandra Kayden (member of the LWVUS Board from 2001 to 2008) with Brian Michael Jenkins in Los Angeles in August of 2008. They are part of the “Strategies for a Secure World” program that encouraged Leagues to educate themselves and their communities about why we are under attack, how terrorism has changed, and to begin thinking about what kinds of policies will be required to defeat terrorism in the long-run.
