Living Room Conversations: Freedom - 1:00 PM

Living Room Conversations 
Topic: Freedom 

Open to LWVPA Members and their Guests 

Trained Host and LWVPA Member, Jackie McGrath,
will lead the Conversation 

Wednesday, October 27,  1:00 PM 

Panera Bread in the Arboretum 
100 West Higgins Road at Route 59 and 72 
South Barrington, IL 60010

Come early, around 12:30 PM, to order lunch or grab a drink or snack. We want to show our appreciation to Panera for allowing us to use this venue for our meeting. 

Freedom is a key concept in America’s founding documents. We are proud to be a free people. This said, there are legitimate differing interpretations of what freedom means. “Live and let live” is great until the freedom to use my property as I see fit interferes with your property. Or when someone’s speech harms another person’s freedoms. Is it ever good for the government to limit an assembly of citizens? How do we celebrate our freedom and care for it so that it reflects our highest values? This conversation asks key questions and invites you to explore the many facets of freedom.

Guests of LWVPA members are always welcome to attend our member events. It is a great opportunity for them to learn about League and meet some of our wonderful members. For this particular event we are especially interested in guests who might have diverse opinions as to the meaning of Freedom, but all are welcome.
