Applied Democracy Exchanges: Women's Advancement in Alabama
For the third session of Applied Democracy Exchanges, the Mathews Center invited Dr. Valerie Burnes from the University of West Alabama and Heather Daniels-Whitson from Alabama Public Television to share the work of their organizations in uplifting Alabama’s most inspiring women throughout our state’s history.
On Thursday, March 16, participants met online to discuss the perils of democracy both domestically and abroad. In recognition of Women’s History Month and the recent centennial of the ratification of the 19th amendment in 2020, March’s exchange was titled “100 Years and Counting: Women’s Advancement in Alabama.” Watch the entire session on the DMC YouTube page.
Our next ADE session will occur on Thursday, April 20, at 12:00 PM CDT online via Zoom. We will be exploring the connection between a community’s access to healthcare and the strength of its civic engagement. Our guest speakers will be Dr. John Dorsey, Founder and Executive Director of Project Horseshoe Farm, and Kristin Boggs, Executive Director of the Alabama Schweitzer Fellowship.
