League of Women Voters Shaker Heights Chapter

The Shaker Heights Chapter of the League of Women Voters Greater Cleveland is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization of over 165 women and men members, a chapter of the LWV of Greater Cleveland. The Shaker Chapter seeks to educate about what's happening in our city, county and beyond; research and report on key issues; and urge citizens to vote and make their voices heard. We welcome new members to be part of voter registration, forums, and other activities in education and advocacy. 

Forums  

Throughout the year, we sponsor and partner with other organizations to provide nonpartisan forums on topics from State of the City to domestic violence. All are free and open to the public.  

Forum: Caring for children and families through COVID-19

Watch the forum video: A Community Conversation: Caring for Children and Families through COVID-19 from June 24. Experts will share about caring for the physical and emotional needs of families, parenting in a socially-distanced summer, COVID as an Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE), and how to advocate for families disproportionately affected by the virus.
