    Haywood LP September Meeting

    Eric from the Haywood Waterways Association will be presenting: http://haywoodwaterways.org/
    According to the mission statement of the Haywood Waterways Association:

    "Haywood County holds something very precious and rare – water that comes directly from our own mountains and nowhere else. Haywood Waterways Association works to protect this treasure."

    Come discuss ways in which Libertarian philosophy applies to protecting the environment. And ways in which our work coincides with theirs:

    "The Haywood Waterways Association works in a positive way to keep our streams clean and clear by providing education and information opportunities, and partnering with other organizations on watershed restoration projects. We have a number of gifted and knowledgeable professionals in our organization, but most of us are just regular people who care about our water. Become more involved in the Haywood Waterways Association by doing such activities as serving on a committee, helping with stream clean-up events, and making others more aware of our Haywood County treasure – our waterways."

    WakeLP Meetup—“Hispanic or Latino”

    “Hispanic or Latino” is the official designation on the voter registration form for the fastest-growing segment of the population in North Carolina. About 9% of all people in N.C.—up from 5 percent in 2000 and just 1 percent in 1990—identify as Hispanic or Latino…although they comprise only about 4 percent of registered voters.

    The LPNC are holding our own here, with about 4 percent of registered Libertarians self-identifying as Hispanic or Latino. But in view of the fact that one of our core principles is that folks should be free to live wherever they want, and can afford, to, shouldn’t we be doing better with this fastest-growing constituency?

    In lieu of our regular weekly discussion of current political events from a Libertarian perspective, this week we are welcoming special guest Maria, who coordinates a grant-funded program designed to assist migrant and seasonal farm workers in obtaining high school equivalency qualification.

    Maria will talk to us about the needs and aspirations of the population she serves and discuss her program’s experience in marketing their offerings.

    Meeting starts at 7 p.m. and the discussion with Maria will begin at 7:30 to give everyone time to find a seat and order food and drinks. Hosted by Brian Irving, LPNC vice chair and WakeLP secretary.

    WakeLP Meetup—Citizen Advisory Boards

    Everybody complains about government being too intrusive but no one does anything about it…except you! Yep, you can improve life for yourself, your family, and your fellow citizens right here in Wake County…and you don’t need to run for office (and win the election) to do so!

    Libertarian Natalie Wu Turner has served on the Orange County Human Relations Commission for over two years. Although she kept a relatively low profile at first, by now everyone on the commission knows she is a Libertarian…but she is so well-respected by the other commissioners and staff that they have asked her to write a weblog for the HRC.

    Natalie will tell us why she chose to focus on the HRC (out of over 40 CABs that exist in Orange County), how she manged to get appointed, what she did to earn their trust, and when she is able to inject the occasional note of sanity into the deliberations of what tends to be a liberal-oriented, government-overreach-happy group.

    Not only is Natalie making a positive difference for the denizens of Orange County, but she is gaining valuable knowledge about who’s who and how politics works in Orange County…knowledge that will be valuable in future should she run for office…or share with another Libertarian who is running in Orange County.

    So please come and learn how you can do the accomplish the same thing!

    Hosted by Brian Irving, secretary, WakeLP.
