    DEFENDING OUR DEMOCRACY:

                          
    In concert with Black Votes Matter (BVM), Sun City Indivisible and Lowcountry Indivisible, we are supporting the Freedom Ride for Voting Rights which will take place across the South beginning on June 19 and culminate in a rally in Washington, DC on June 26.
     
    BVM’s Freedom Rides for Voting Rights continues the tradition of the original Freedom Rides as more than 40 states consider legislation to restrict voting rights.  
     

    The Freedom Ride event will be at the State House (1100 Gervais St, Columbia, SC 29208) in Columbia, SC on Tuesday, June 22 from 2 to 4 PM.  If you are interested in participating in the event, we are coordinating carpools that will leave the Hardeeville area from the Walmart parking lot at 10:15 AM.  Look for the American flag by the corner closest to the gas station.  Bring signs saying “Protect Voting Rights” as well as water and snacks.
     
    Contact Jerry Whalen
     replyLCI@gmail.com or Pam Reading-Smith suncityindivisible@gmail.com for more information and to schedule your participation.  Please put Freedom Ride in the subject line.

    To All Democrats:

     

    Exciting plans are underway.  As you know, by statute, we reorganize the Precincts every two years - but we are starting early this election season to be up and running at the start of 2022.   We already have 2 Democratic candidates running for US Senate and 3 Democratic candidates running for SC Governor (time for Gov. McMaster to retire).

     

    To kick off - the BCDP is hosting a Virtual Precinct Training Session specifically geared to the Hilton Head precincts (such as covering how to organize gated communities, etc.).   We urge all of those interesting in preparing for the 2022 elections to attend - and please pass on this opportunity to anyone you think might be interested.  Membership in the SOB Club is not required to be part of a precinct team.

     

    If you are interested in attending this training - please RVSP to:  SOBDemClub@gmail.com and you will be sent a Zoom link.   

     

    We need all of you - please plan to attend.

    The World Affairs Council of Hilton Head is currently conducting its 2021-22 membership campaign. Many Liberal Ladies are members but if you are new to the area or not already a member, consider joining.

    For just $125, you are provided 14 Friday morning presentations by world class leaders in their disciplines. John Bolton, (yes, that John Bolton) opens in October with a presentation followed by an impressive line up of presenters. For the complete list, click here: https://wachh.org/FridayMeetings21-22

    In addition to the Friday morning speaker series, there is a fall book club (one book over 3 -4 sessions) and a winter 8 week small discussion series. Usually, three evening sessions are offered as well. I have participated in all and found them very valuable.

    All for $125! They intend to resume in person meetings in \October at First Presbyterian Church and sessions will also be live streamed. As always, the speaker is recorded and posted on their website if you miss the presentation.

    The Virtual Run for South Carolina Native Trees will act as a public fundraiser to acquire funds for the needed gardening supplies of the project so that 500 trees can be grown and planted principally in Beaufort County.  From increased residential/commercial development as well as past hurricanes, coastal South Carolina has been losing many trees.  The loss of trees has caused the displacement of animals often leading to road kill, poor air quality, destroyed habitats, and diminished natural beauty.  In an effort to restore the lost trees, the Environmental Club at USCB is starting a tree planting initiative to have 500 South Carolina native trees planted by 2022.  Some of the coastal native trees we are working with include:

        1. Southern Live Oak (Quercus virginiana)
        2. Baldcypress (Taxodium distichum)
        3. Southern Red Oak (Quercus falcata)
        4. Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora)
        5. Longleaf Pine (Pinus palustris)
