||2013 Kansas State Convention
"Off the Bench, Into the Fray"
Saturday, April 27, 2013, 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Holiday Inn & Suites, 8787 Reeder Rd., Overland Park, KS 66214
NATIONAL LEAGUE PRESIDENT,
will speak at our April 27 LWVK State Convention concerning dangers of Voter Restrictions, tinkering with independent courts and money in elections.
Our luncheon speaker will be award-winning Mary Sanchez;
“Immigration and Civility”
Arguably, today's most important civic issue is how we treat one another. Too often, it's with pride and prejudice. Too often, it's talking -- or screaming -- past each other.
Mary Sanchez brings insight and foresight to two contentious issues: Immigration and civility. A weekly syndicated columnist with Tribune Media Services, she specializes in Latin American issues. She is also a Kansas City Star metro columnist, as well as with Poder, a business magazine geared to Latin America. Sanchez is a correstpondent for EFE, a Spanish wire service.
Her column received the 2007 National Clarion Award. That year, some of her columns were published in "Best Newspaper Writing 2007." Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Mary Sanchez has lived in Mexico and traveled extensively in Central America.
The League of Women Voters of Kansas (LWVK) is delighted to welcome Mary Sanchez as the keynote luncheon speaker at the 2013 Convention. It will be held on Saturday, 4/27, at the Overland Park Holiday Inn & Suites.
