Virtual Tuesday Programs: "Votes for Women!"
"Votes for Women!" - Commemorating the Centennial of the 19th Amendment to the US
Guest Speaker: Michelle Witte
The passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920 expanded voting rights for women and opened up an entire new century of civic engagement. Come learn more about Woman Suffrage in Minnesota, and how our voting rights continue to expand - and be challenged - today.
Michelle Witte, Executive Director of the League of Women Voters Minnesota, will share with us some of the unique history related to the "Votes for Women" movement here in our State, and how the League of Women Voters continues to live out the mission of empowering voters and defending democracy as a nonpartisan, civic engagement organization, with 35 community-based chapters here in Minnesota.
