#100YearsofVoting: Labor, Justice and the Fight for Democracy
On August 18, 1920, women gained the Constitutional right to vote after a century-long fight for equal representation. This year will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. With less than 80 days to the 2020 election, the urgency to mobilize working women to vote is paramount in the goal of electing women candidates and candidates who advocate for women, and to getting this country back on track in the wake of the pandemic and its disproportionate impact on women, especially women of color.
In honor of the anniversary, the Office of Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler is hosting a roundtable discussion to celebrate women’s right to vote and uplifting the issues affecting working women. Join us for a conversation between AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler, President Randi Weingarten, Vice-President Cindy Estrada, Alvina Yeh, Cassandra Hammond, and Dr. C.Nicole Mason on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at 6:30pm EST.
