Please join WCC for this month’s Table Talk: An Election is One Day, but Civic Engagement is Every Day featuring L. Joy Williams and Wendy Weiser, moderated by (Grace) Angela Henry. The conversation will cover the next steps for the country and city; focus on civic engagement beyond the ballot; and determine where we go from here. As Gloria Steinem stated, “voting isn’t the most we can do, but the least. To have a democracy, you have to want one.”
If you are interested in learning more about the 2020 election and how voting translates to other arenas of civic participation, please join us! All are welcome. Come together with experts to learn how and why to continue civic involvement after voting.

L. Joy Williams is a political strategist, public speaker, political analyst, and social justice activist. L. Joy currently serves as the President of the Brooklyn NAACP, one of the most generationally diverse branches in the US. She is also the Legislative Coordinator for the New York State NAACP Conference of Branches. L. Joy is also the Creator, Host, and Producer of the civic education show #SundayCivics on SiriusXM Urban View. L. Joy travels the country training, advising, and supporting efforts to build Black women’s political power and leadership potential.

Wendy Weiser directs the Democracy Program at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, a nonpartisan think tank and public interest law center that works to revitalize, reform, and defend systems of democracy and justice. She founded and directed the program’s Voting Rights and Elections Project, directing litigation, research, and advocacy efforts to enhance political participation and prevent voter disenfranchisement across the country.

The discussion will be moderated by WCC lifetime member (Grace) Angela Henry, whose background in education, empowerment, and activism will encourage women to consider the wide range of ways they can get involved in their communities during and after the election.
