LWVO member and Voter Services Chair Peggy Graybill developed and presented a civil rights and voting rights curriculum to middle school students at Yu Ming Charter School, which had invited LWVO to participate in a civics enrichment program for its 6-8 grade students. Peggy's curriculum also included information on the history of voter suppression in the United States.
Part of the curriculum involved middle schoolers from Yu Ming conducting voter registration and education in Chinatown Oakland. Although Yu Ming students have been learning Mandarin and the crowd is Cantonese speakers, the students registered 8 voters!
It was a fun week!
