The League of Women Voters of Tarrant County, following the guidance of the national League of Women Voters, is cancelling all events for the remainder of March. This includes postponing our Nineteenth Amendment Centennial Gala on March 20 (which we will reschedule for late spring or early fall), and cancelling all unit meetings and scheduled voter registration events at UT Arlington and TCU. We will continue to monitor the local health situation and re-evaluate our plans for April as needed.
