Knit Democracy Together @ Latham Library
Aug 4 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Knit Democracy Together @ Latham Library

Attend a Knit Democracy Together maker circle at the Latham Library. Gather with other civically minded knitters and crafters to deepen your understanding of the electoral system. Artist and former election lawyer Eve Jacobs-Carnahan will talk about “Counting the Vote: the Process, the People, and the Electoral College.”

As you build connections, you will be inspired to ensure everyone’s vote is counted. While we talk about democracy, we’ll make pieces of a collaborative sculpture of a state capitol. It’s a metaphor for how each small action can cumulatively have impact. Don’t knit? No worries. We’ll have activities for non-knitters too. Instructions provided. More information and registration at https://knitdemocracy.org/thetford .
