LWVCM is cosponsoring the 6th Annual Voices From The Past--a unique living history event that tells the stories of our founding fathers, civic leaders, pioneering women, and a few interesting characters. Guests are invited to take a "spirited stroll" through Charlotte’s historic cemeteries and interact with portrayers as they tell the stories of the men and women who helped make Charlotte what it is today. Our own Suzanne Elsberry will interview Gladys Avery Tillet, suffragette, the LWVCM‘s first president, and years later...LWVNC President. Voices From The Past launched in 2017 by The Mecklenburg Historical Association (MHA). Starting with the 2023 event, the MHA turned the event over to Historic Elmwood Pinewood Inc. (HEPI), to be used as a fundraiser to preserve, restore and enhance these historic cemeteries. Video Preview: https://www.wbtv.com/video/2024/03/26/voices-past/

According to Mental Health America, almost 40% of caregivers identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC). Within each BIPOC racial/ethnic group, the rates of caregiving are higher than in white demographics. This year’s Until Justice Just Is community panel and discussion will focus on caregiving in communities of color, the relevant cultural context associated with this practice and the necessity for radical change when it comes to the supportive services of both caretaker and those being cared for. It truly takes a village to not only care for a child but also the lives of those who may be experiencing short-term or long term limitations within our communities (Johns Hopkins Medicine). The YMCA of Central Carolinas and the LWVCM invite the community to this Until Justice Just Is event. Panelists Dr. Montoro Rodriguez, Juanita Wade and Venitra White-Dean will lead the conversation.
