Our Centennial

The five-part series to celebrate 100 years

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 Centennial 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.

Watch this page for more announcements about Centennial activities. To get involved, please email [email protected].
