WILLIAMSBURG — Newly elected and appointed board members of the Williamsburg Area League of Women Voters gathered at the Stryker Center, Williamsburg Regional Library Wednesday, July 20, to plan initiatives for the coming year.

During the meeting, the new board discussed focus areas including childcare, educational equity, environmental justice, and money in politics.

Additionally, the board discussed voter registration, as well as voter education initiatives, increasing membership and the upcoming Great Decisions lecture series.
