NC Women Vote Centennial Event – July 25

When Women Gather: Uniting for Positive Change

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many of the plans for commemorating and learning from the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, a milestone in women’s fight for the vote.

Our work was not done in 1920, and the events of spring 2020 have made it clear there is much still to do. The title of the event (chosen in Fall 2019) is even more resonant now.

We hope you will join with women and men from across the state in this online event that is sure to make 2020 inspiring and memorable.

Saturday, July 25, 9:30-noon – registration is free.
