This forum will mark the Centennial Anniversary of the adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution which prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex.
Local League member Penelope Clute will offer introductory remarks on the historical significance of the day. Michelle Cromwell, PhD., SUNY Vice President for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion/Chief Diversity Officer will offer a keynote address, “The Crossroads: Where Democracy, Social Justice and Civil Rights Meet.”
