A CENTURY OF CIVIC ENGAGEMENT: LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS MINNESOTA
To celebrate the 19th Amendment’s centennial year, LWV Minnesota is creating a traveling exhibit to recognize the organization’s mission and history over the past century.
Exhibit visitors will discover that: “Growing from the deep roots of the suffrage movement in the 19th century, Minnesota’s non-partisan League of Women Voters uses a statewide network of local chapters to encourage informed and active participation in government, register and empower voters, work to increase understanding of public policy issues, cultivate women leaders, and influence public policy through education and advocacy."
Specifically, the goals of the exhibit are:
To recognize and celebrate a century of activism by LWV Minnesota
To recall our history through a lens of diversity, equity and inclusion
To activate visitors to educate themselves and to vote
To remind visitors that democracy depends on their participation
To empower visitors to act in defense of democracy
