Free The Girls Bra Drive-By
12:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The Zonta Club of Trenton/Mercer is collecting gently used or new bras to help in the fight to end human trafficking.  The bras are given to women survivors of human trafficking in El Salvador to sell in the market, where they earn a sustainable income to support and educate themselves and their families.  To the women there, bras mean so much more then meets the eye: Bras equate to opportunity; bras mean safe and sustainable income; bras help send children to safer schools; bras bring a chance for freedom.  Eighty percent of trafficking victims will be re-exploited due to lack of sustainable employment.

For more information, contact the Zonta Club of Trenton/Mercer at zontatrentonmercer@gmail.com.

Who Really Elects the President?: The Workings of the Electoral College
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Have you ever wondered about how the Electoral College actually works? How many votes does each state receive? How someone comes to be an elector? In the early days of the Republic, the Founding Fathers designed this political process as a way to manage an unruly public and, if needed, overturn the election results. So has it worked in the way it was intended? In this program, participants will learn about the history of the Electoral College and how it works through the account of Frank Argote-Freyre, Ph.D., Associate Professor at Kean University, Department of History.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Library, Friends of the Ewing Library, Friends of the West Windsor Library, Friends of the Hickory Corner Library and the Robbinsville Township Library Advisory Committee.
