Dare LWV to host Dare Minority Coalition for first ‘Hot Topics’ session

The Dare League of Women Voters will host “Hot Topics” sessions beginning November 20.

The first guest speaker will be George Carver, executive director of the Dare Minority Coalition, Inc., a tax-exempt organization founded in November 2018. Normally held as luncheons, “Hot Topics” sessions will be held via ZOOM until COVID is no longer a threat. The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions of Carver via ZOOM.

LWV members and the public are invited to join the program on Friday, November 20 at 1 p.m. To register, email Fran Kapinos, League co-president, at fkapinos@aol.com and she will send a ZOOM link.

Dare Minority Coalition played a lead role in organizing the rally held this past summer in Manteo to support equal justice. It focuses on assisting low- and moderate-income families in meeting housing needs as well as provides re-entry assistance for those leaving incarceration. According to Carver, “Through our outreach programs, we help promote the physical and mental well-being of the community.”

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government. Membership is open to both men and women. For further information, visit website www.lwvdarenc.org.
