Women’s Suffrage Centennial Celebration
October 22, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The League of Women Voters of Umpqua Valley will present a historic slideshow entitled “Women’s Suffrage Centennial Celebration” in the South Umpqua Room of the Roseburg Public Library, 1409 NE Diamond Lake Blvd on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 from 6:00- 7:30PM.
Learn about the women’s suffrage movement and join us in launching a series of community events designed to celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the 1920 passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. American women struggled and organized for years to achieve recognition of their right to vote nationally. The League is planning celebrations in Douglas County during 2020. The League would like to know if other groups are planning similar celebrations and welcomes community members and groups who would like to partner with us in this historic anniversary opportunity.
The presentation is free and open to the public. All genders are welcome. For more information call 541-672-1914.
