Register Now for LWVWA’s Virtual Centennial Council
The upcoming 2020 election may be the most important of our lifetime. It’s also 100 years since the passing of the 19th Amendment giving women (some) the right to vote. Please join us in this exciting virtual experiment. You will have fun while you increase your knowledge, honor the suffragists and magnify your voice for the future!
We have virtual sessions that will be about an hour each, spread out over a week so you can carry on your work at home, stay in your pajamas, drink whatever you want while attending and, most importantly, meet members across the State who are interested in the same topics that you are.
2020 Marks a Century of the League of Women Voters and the League of Women Voters of Washington Working to Create a More Perfect Democracy
The League of Women Voters was founded by Carrie Chapman Catt in 1920, just six months before the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, giving all American women the right to vote after a 72-year fight for women’s suffrage.
From the beginning, the League has been an activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that citizens should play a critical role in advocacy. As we reach our 100th, the League is setting the stage for vibrant growth, with a new generation of leaders passionate about active participation in government.
Thank You for Taking Action with the League
