Sticking with its mission of helping the next generation of U.S. voters be both informed and interested in civic issues, the Fredonia American Democracy Project (ADP) Committee held a tabling event dedicated to the topic of the “New York State’s Women's Rights Agenda.”

On March 27, members of the ADP ran a table in McEwen Hall, accepting postcards from faculty, students and staff regarding their thoughts on the topic. The postcards were then mailed to New York officials.

“It was rewarding to witness over 30 students write postcards in which they shared their concerns on the state of women's rights in N.Y.S.,” said Dr. Angela McGowan-Kirsch, the committee chair of ADP. “We look forward to hearing what the elected officials say in response to students' postcards and have more students get involved with next month's table topics.”

The table was co-hosted by Fredonia Feminists and sponsored by the Fredonia ADP Committee and the Division of Advancement, Engagement and Economic Development. It was lead by Alia Hanai, ADP’s intern.

The ADP holds similar events each month as a way to engage the campus community with the topic that the group has been discussing. During the month of April, the group will be focusing on topics relating to Earth Month.
