China’s Road into Latin America by Margaret Myers
As the Trump administration continues to withdraw from the world stage, China is looking to fill the void. How does Latin America fit into China’s “One Belt, One Road” plan? How will the relationship with China affect the region? Should the U.S. be concerned about China’s growing “sphere of influence?”

Our moderator is Mike Todt. Mike  is a former hospital CEO and lecturer at West Virginia University. He is a member of PATH in Durango, a local community organization that cares about homelessness and the various ways it is experienced in Durango, La Plata County and the surrounding region. 


100th Anniversary 

Celebrations in 2020

The League of Women Voters was founded by Carrie Chapman Catt on February 14, 1920 to support  women’s suffrage rights, approximately six months before the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting American women the right to vote, a right known as women’s suffrage, was ratified on August 18, 1920, ending almost a century of protest, and officially adopted  on August 26, 1920.



19th Amendment Celebrations are sponsored by the Durango Branch of the American Association of University Women and the League of Women Voters of La Plata County.
