to commemorate U.S. women winning the right to vote!
League of Women Voters of Thurston County has been celebrating the day
U.S women won the right to vote by confirmation of the 19th Amendment
with the street banner shown here. The banner is put up for the entire
week of August 26th. Its location in Olympia, in front of the Capitol
on Capitol Way helps draw plenty of attention. The banner was
originally a 2010 Education Fund project. It was expected to be put on
display every year for 4-10 years. Thanks to funding from LWVWA Civic
Education Grants, this is the 7th year the banner will be helping to
celebrate Women’s Equality Day.
I-1464 certified for the ballot in November
As we move forward, we will also need your help telling voters
across the state about I-1464. If you haven't already, sign up for
information about upcoming volunteer opportunities, and be sure to share our Facebook page with
your friends. Yes on 1464!
