Local League of Women Voters Wins National Award

During its recent convention , the  League of Women Voters-US  singled out  the  Southern Monmouth County league as a national leader in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

The award comes  in recognition of the initiative to register formerly incarcerated citizens on a regular basis at the ReEntry program in Neptune City.  Local League member,  Annette Scott went on to establish voter registration and encourage voter responsibility in the Re-entry programs throughout the state.  Reenter –Register – Vote is the message of the program which seeks  to  build equitable partnerships  with programs such as ReEntry

The organization was also awarded a $500 grant for its proposal  to develop  social media  to reach out to a greater number of  residents and groups.
