Women Leading Government & Women Elected Municipal Officials
A Celebration of the 19th Amendment
Women Leading Government and Women Elected Municipal Officials, in collaboration with Suffrage100MA, are hosting a free webinar, A Celebration of the 19th Amendment, on June 25, 10 a.m. to noon.
June 25, 2020, marked the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote in the United States. This year, on that same date, WLG and WEMO will celebrate this historic milestone while also looking ahead to the work still to be done.
The webinar will begin with a showing of a moving and thought-provoking, 30-minute movie created by Suffrage100MA: “The Fight for Women’s Suffrage: Looking Back, Marching Forward.”
Following the movie, a panel of speakers will share their thoughts:
• Suffrage100MA Executive Director Fredie Kay
• Winchester Town Manager and former Fitchburg Mayor Lisa Wong, who will discuss how racism, sexism and discrimination still linger and impact American politics
The meeting will close with a facilitated discussion led by Randolph Town Councillor and Suffrage100MA Vice President Katrina Huff-Larmon.
WLG and WEMO members may register here. Registrants will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom information, and are asked to add the meeting to their calendar so they can easily log into the meeting.
