Davis Enterprise Traces the History of the Davis League of Women Voters (154)

In a front-page story on Sunday June 2nd, the Davis Enterprise reported on the closing of the Davis chapter of the League of Women Voters.

I think this is an event of special significance in understanding the history of Davis. As is elaborated in the Enterprise story, the League was an important force in shaping Davis politics in the transformative period of the 1950-70s. But Davis and the world have continued to change in ways that have reduced interest in the League--and, perhaps, in civic engagement more generally. Details follow the jump.
