Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the League of Women Voters!

Feb 16, 2020

City of Charlottesville Mayor Nikuyah Walker presents LWV CVA President Pat Cochran with a copy of the Proclamation read at the City Council Meeting on February 17, 2020, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the League of Women Voters.

Coming March 2 – Northside Library (Jefferson Madison Regional Library)

705 West Rio Road, Charlottesville.

Hours: Monday – Thursday: 10 – 9pm; Friday – Saturday: 10am – 5pm
Sunday: closed

To mark this important milestone in League history, the 100th anniversary of the League of Women Voters, our local League is preparing a major bulletin board display at Northside Library, in the main hallway.  Panels will explain How It All Began: The Story of the Suffragettes; followed by The Founding of the League of Women Voters on the heels of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920; and A Look to the Future!

Another series of panels will display the history of our local League as told by our presidents in the booklet published on the 70th anniversary of the LWV CVA, starting with our first president, Mary Stamps White, in 1946. Each entry is in the president’s own words and gives a detailed account of all League activities that have happened on the local level in central Virginia. You will be amazed at our history and accomplishments: empowering voters and defending democracy!

Be sure to stop by Northside Library during the month of March to view this splendid exhibit prepared by our local LWV CVA!
