League of Women Voters Lunch and Learn
Following the ratification of the 19th Amendment, the important work of registering women to vote began. 100 years later, the League of Women Voters(LWV) is still an active, non-partisan political organization that continues to encourage people to become informed and actively participate in government. The Museum of Durham History is partnering with the League of Women Voters Orange, Durham and Chatham Counties, Inc. for a “lunch and learn” program on October 7th from 1-2PM live-streamed on the Museum’s Facebook. The program will explore the history of the LWV and provide information on changes to the voting process due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Programming for Votes for Suffrage: 100 Years of Women in Durham Politics has been made possible with special support from the Snyderman Fund.
