The League of Women Voters of New Castle proudly supports the Black Lives Matter movement and strongly denounces the hateful vandalism of the Black Lives Matter sign at the Chappaqua Friends Meeting House in Chappaqua. We stand in complete support of all BIPOC members of our local, national, and global community.     Read the LWVUS response to the police killing of George Floyd here. Black people across this country continue to be the target of police violence. It is not enough to stand in solidarity with the Black community. We must take action to deconstruct systemic racism everywhere. We honor George Floyd’s life by committing to deepening our anti-racism work throughout the League.
