Let us introduce ourselves as the two members of the 2022 Programs Committee: Jamie Powers and Susannah Martin. As many of you know, we started off the year with a unique and inspiring presentation by Secretary of State Shirley N. Weber. In a nod to Black History month, she spoke about both old and new challenges of access to voting in the Black community. She warned of further challenges to come and made a call for action on all our parts. We know many of our attendees felt invigorated by her talk and are excited to see how WLS can help shape that action.
Our next presentation will be in June, Pride Month. In celebration of the LGBTQ community, we are honored to have Judge Laurie Earl and Judge Andi Mudryk speak with us. We are still working out the details but stay tuned for more information. If you have any input on this program or others to come, we would love to hear from you. We hope you enjoy the rest of our programs this year!
