IN LEAGUE WITH JOY CARDIN AND FRIENDS

Guest:  Joy Cardin, former Wisconsin Public Radio Host; Board member, League of Women Voters of Wisconsin

What happens when a well-known radio host retires? Joy Cardin, former Wisconsin Public Radio Host, has found a new home with the League of Women Voters where she now serves on the Board of the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin and is active in the Dane County Chapter.

Sunday, June 23, on the Capitol Square, Joy Cardin was joined by State Representatives Joan Ballweg and Melissa Sargent, and Rose Stephenson who portrayed Ripon-born suffragist and founder of the League of Women Voters, Carrie Chapman Catt, for a program highlighting the importance of Wisconsin being the first state to ratify the 19th Amendment 100 years ago and also the 100th anniversary of the League of Women voters.

On this program, Joy Cardin shares the history of the League of Women Voters which began in concert with women getting the right to vote as a resource to educate women voters on the policies and issues of the day. One hundred years later, the League remains a nonpartisan educational source for voter education and advocacy.
