Contact South Larimer Discussion Group

Emphasizing issues of importance to citizens in southern Larimer County, the South Larimer Discussion Group is an informal meeting of the Larimer League of Women Voters who live in Loveland, Bethoud, Johnstown or neighboring areas. We seek to expand communications by informing each other and fellow voters about relevant issues in our area through non-partisan, grassroots discussions.

We focus on a wide array of topics pertinent to southern Larimer County, such as current affairs, elections and ballot issues, civics, education (K-12 + higher education), local environmental interests, local affairs and events, plus more. We emphasize citizenship through education, fact finding and advocating for LWV positions that impact our area. In addition, we also share vital information developed through consensus from LWV Colorado and USA.

We actively pursue opportunities to enhance diversity, equity and inclusion in our part of Larimer County. Further, we foster connections by our members with our local city, town, county, state and national governments.

Check our calendar for upcoming meetings and topics. Whenever a topic tickles your fancy, please join us. You are welcome to suggest topics too; share your insights; speak or just listen to lively discussions.

Meetings are generally held the 3rd Monday of each month, 6:30-8:00 pm at the Namaqua Unitarian Universalist Church, 745 East 5th Street, Loveland, CO  80537 in the North Meeting Hall (Entrance off Pierce Avenue).

Help Needed on Suffragist Project

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution granting women the right to vote, Jane DeDecker, a Loveland artist, has designed a sculpture of suffragists. Jane is now raising funds in order to complete the “Every Word We Utter Monument” and have the monument placed in the Washington, D.C. National Mall in August of 2020.

Our own LWV-Larimer County is supporting this project in a number of ways. We are helping to publicize it. We are supporting Congressman Joe Neguse’s bill (116th Congress, HR 473) to allow this statue to be placed in the Mall. Further, since no federal funds may be used to pay for this monument, we are looking at ways to help raise the $1 million needed to make the statue a reality. 

If you are interested in advocating for this worthy cause, please email Carol Rush at or telephone 970-667-5077. Carol is hoping that you may help with events, participate in future planning to publicize the women’s right to vote anniversary in 2020 and help finance the DeDecker project.
