Centennial Events

2019: Minnesota | 2020: National

Mark your calendars, because our Centennial is right around the corner! Join us by participating in events that celebrate and commemorate the ratification of the 19th Amendment, giving women – finally – the right to vote.

Our five-part Centennial series will also recognize the important people who helped form LWV Minnesota, and will spotlight the 100-year legacy of our local Leagues and all they have done over the past century to empower voters and defend democracy.
