Dee’s desire to be a part of an organization that makes a real difference in people’s lives led her to the League of Women Voters while she was still an active duty service member. Now, this Air Force veteran and college educator works tirelessly to motivate her students, neighbors—indeed anyone she meets—to register and vote.
Dee works directly in the communities she’s fighting for, partnering with local school systems, sororities, churches, and election offices to equip community members with the knowledge and tools they need to take advantage of their vote. To Dee, her most important work with the League centers on voter engagement and empowerment. She believes the best way to support underrepresented voters is to help them use their voice.
“When it comes to equal representation in government, it’s simple: you vote for the people who care about what you care about.”
