LWV OPRF November 22 Week in Preview
Giving thanks for democracy
November 30 - Giving Tuesday During this week of gratitude and family reunions, take a moment to recall that last year’s election was among the nation’s greatest where more Republicans and Democrats voted than ever before while in the midst of a global pandemic. Then, while we held our collective breath, institutions and individuals - some more than others - stood tall ensuring the outcome of a robust, legitimate election. Fast forward to today and the Big Lie has grown tentacles into unimaginable places, endangering our proud, nearly 250 year old democracy. If you are able and so inclined, please consider making a #Giving Tuesday donation to the LWVOPRF to help continue the fight for voter’s education and rights. Checks made out to the LWV OPRF can be mailed to P.O. Box 3301 Oak Park, IL 60303-3301 or use the button below to donate on our website.
