Making Democracy Work

LWV 100th Birthday

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the national League of Women Voters on February 14 and the Massachusetts League of Women Voters on May 27. The 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote, was adopted on August 26, 1920.

Planning for the LWV 100th

Clearly, next year is an opportunity to present our proud history to the public and to celebrate 100 years of contributions to the civic life of our communities. Lexington is planning its own observances in addition to those at the state and national levels. The Lexington LWV Board is forming a task force to plan and carry out our anniversary activities. Please get involved! We particularly want to hear from long--time members who constitute our local memory bank.
