The Chattanooga members-at-large Unit of the League of Women Voters of Tennessee (LWVTN) will continue its schedule of programs at 5:30 p.m. on Monday in the training room of the Business Development Center, 100 Cherokee Blvd..
UnifiEd Executive Director Elizabeth Crews and Education Engagement Coordinator Matt Johnson will explain the goals of the organization, and its plans for helping to create better schools in Hamilton County.
Founded in June of 2014, UnifiEd is a community-led movement of parents, teachers, and citizens who want every student in Chattanooga to have the chance to attend great public schools.
According to Mr. Johnson, “We believe that if Chattanoogans are informed about how to help teachers and students, given the training and tools to advocate for them, and encouraged to unite our voices, we can create real and lasting change. Together, we can ensure that every student has the opportunity to learn, grow, thrive, and prosper.”
Interested individuals do not have to have to be LWV members to attend the program. However, the local unit is continuing to recruit members, and applications will be available at the meeting.
The monthly meetings of the LWV are now being held on the third Monday of each month in the Training Room of the Business Development Center. Please park in the Renaissance Park parking lot across the street, not the BDC’s lot. There will be no meeting in December as the third Monday falls during Christmas week.
The League of Women Voters is a political organization supporting no party and no candidate, open to both men and women, encouraging informed and active participation in government. For more information about the League of Women Voters, visit www.lwvtn.org.
