More than 100 people gathered at Duluth's Coppertop Church on Saturday in an effort to become more educated, active citizens.

The League of Women Voters has been organizing the annual Citizens in Action event for 16 years. This year they had 25 co-sponsoring organizations.

Planning Committee Chair Rosie Loeffler-Kemp said the goal is to educate and inspire people about the process of government and how to get involved. The theme this year was "Together From Table to Action."

"We all need to come to the table," she said. "We all might bring different perspectives, be diverse in different ways, but we need to listen to each other, learn from each other and then that's what's going to spur really great action on issues and activities."

About 125 people were at the event Saturday. Rep. Rena Moran gave the opening address.
