Fun and learning night, Oct. 17

Published 8:25 pm Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Judith Scruggs and Glenn Rodgers of the Hendersonville League of Women Voters, join us with information about immigration and what it actually means to our country.

The League of Women Voters adopted the study of Immigration in 2006 at its national convention. The national committee did its research in 2006-07, local Leagues across the country did their study in 2007-08 and reached a consensus in April 2008.

Since that time the Henderson County League members have made numerous presentations to church, civic and public groups, including the Latino population and the League’s national and state conventions. Recently, the League has contacted local high schools to encourage them to consider this topic in their civics, US history, or social studies classes.
