Join Us — Thursday, August 26, SacramentoHop on board to join us for a very special celebration of the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment legalizing the right of women to vote in the U.S. Thousands of women, and men, fought for decades to secure this basic democratic right.On August 26, we will honor the achievements of the suffrage movement, and the women who were imprisoned and abused in the fight. We will also continue our protest of Meg Whitman, who has disgraced the suffragists’ legacy, and now thinks she is entitled to be governor because of her wealth and privilege as a billionaire corporate CEO.
