League of Women Voters leaders, Carol Moon Goldberg and Trisha Uhrhammer, will address the role of the LWV encouraging an active and informed citizenry, and will specifically discuss the current challenges to voting rights across the United States.

California enjoys some of the most comprehensive voter rights laws in the country, but many states are limiting citizens’ access and ability to vote, affecting tens of thousands of voters.

Join us as Trisha and Carol explore the current erosion of the fundamental constitutional right of voting, through both voter suppression and election subversion. Bring your questions for the Q&A!

Immediately following the presentation, folks will meet at Del Norte Hall to participate in a brown bag lunch in a shady spot on campus. If you would like to learn more about the campus, meet at 12:30 in front of Del Norte Hall for a self-guided campus tour.

Sac State & Renaissance COVID Safety Plan Protocols: To participate in summer programs on the Sac State campus requires:

1.Be fully vaccinated – Participants are required to be fully vaccinated to participate in indoor programs on the Sac State campus. On Dec. 22, 2021, the CSU Chancellor’s office announced that it requires faculty, staff, and students to receive booster shots to be fully immunized against COVID-19 and comply with the CSU Vaccination Policy. As a third-party event, RS program participation accepts no medical or religious exemptions.

2. Vaccination self-attestation - Participants will read, complete, and sign a vaccination self-attestation sheet when entering the program classroom or participate in a tour. Attestation will include showing your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card.

3. Face masks - The wearing of face masks is optional when attending programs indoors on the Sac State campus. Participants are expected to bring their own face masks.

4. Social distance - Everyone is encouraged to social distance to whatever extent possible within the classrooms. This is not required by the current university policies but is desired to honor Renaissance members’ safety wishes expressed in recent surveys. A minimum distance of three feet and a preferred distance of six feet is the RS social distancing standard.
