Welcome to the Liberal Ladies of the Lowcountry! We are an organization of like-minded women who meet monthly, September to June, to share and discuss common interests and learn from each other. Our group was started in 2011 by four liberal women who met for lunch, seeking the opportunity to freely share their ideas. Those conversations continue and, though we are not party affiliated, include topics such as politics, social issues and local and state-wide concerns. Since then, the organization has grown to over 500 members, drawing from the Hilton Head and Bluffton communities as well as other areas of Beaufort County.
The luncheon meetings include guest speakers. All of the meetings provide opportunities to network. Members may bring one guest per meeting as space permits. Current subgroups available to members include a Book Group and a Media Discussion (formerly Movie/Dining) Group, both of which are driven by rich discussion of “critical issues,” and a Tennis Group. In 2019, small conversation groups were begun. These groups of approximately 10 are member driven and provide opportunity to discuss current issues at the local, state and national level.
Special events are planned throughout the year. Dues are paid as part of the initial membership and collected once a year. A bimonthly newsletter, CONNECTIONS, keeps members informed of upcoming organization events and encourages the sharing of information from member to member. There are many Liberal Ladies of the Lowcountry who belong to other nonprofit organizations throughout the community and share these events with members via member to member column in CONNECTIONS and the website section.
“For liberalism is not so much a party creed or set of fixed platform promises as it is an attitude of mind and heart, a faith in our ability through the experiences of reason and judgment to increase the amount of justice and freedom and brotherhood which all human life deserves.”
John F. Kennedy, September 15, 1960
