Making Democracy Work

Calendar of Events

We sponsor meetings and events for the public and League members. This calendar includes our own meetings as well as community events which may be of particular interest to our membership.

2018-2019 Schedule

We follow the academic calendar and have at least one activity per month from August to May. We do not meet in December.

For the 2018-2019 calendar, membership meetings will generally be held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, however, due to availability of speakers or facilities, there may be some variance in that schedule.

Since 2018 is an election year, we expect to be offering candidate forums ahead of all contested general elections in Murfreesboro and Rutherford County.

Check back often for updates as we confirm events.

Immigration: Where Are We? - A Model Debate Between MTSU and Belmont. The League of Women Voters of Murfreesboro/Rutherford County is pleased to present a debate showcase between two award-winning teams: MTSU and Belmont. Local university debaters will demonstrate exemplary political discourse as they consider issues around the topic of Immigration in America, particularly economic, humanitarian, and safety/security impacts on the state of Tennessee.

A cornerstone for these teams is integrity, respect and kindness, as well as preparation on the issues based on current law, history, and more. Both teams will be prepared to argue either for or against the questions presented and will adhere to established rules for arguments and rebuttals in the allotted time. This format does not allow questions from the audience.

It is important to note that team members may not be arguing their personal beliefs on any questions considered. The League will share our national position on the issue after the debate.

The debate will be held on Tuesday evening, April 9th, at 6:30 in the Council Chambers at Murfreesboro City Hall. Doors open at 6:00. This event is open to the public. We hope you can join us on Tuesday - and bring a friend!
