Join us and the LWV New Mexico on Thursday, February 6, 2020, we’ll be celebrating both the 100th Anniversary of the League of Women Voters and New Mexico’s ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, acknowledging women’s right to vote. League members Senator Nancy Rodriguez of Santa Fe and Rep. Joanne Ferrary of Las Cruces are sponsoring legislative memorials recognizing the League’s history and accomplishments in their respective chambers that morning.
We will have 12 display tables for our Leagues and our partners in the West Hall starting at 8 am and then break around 12:30 pm for some fun, speakers, and refreshments. LWVNM President Hannah Burling will MC the event and introduce LWVUS Executive Director Virginia Kase who is coming to Santa Fe from Washington, D.C., for this momentous occasion. Governor Lujan Grisham will deliver proclamations about the dual celebration, and some legislators will also speak. In addition to comments from League leaders, representatives from our partner organizations will make brief comments about our shared goals related to “Empowering voters. Strengthening democracy.”
