Women as champions of voting and civic engagement
Throughout 2020, the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center celebrated the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment. Now we set sights on the next 100 years. We must ensure that every individual understands civic responsibilities. This includes voting, as well as how to think critically about legislation, advocate for change, understand others’ viewpoints, vote mindfully and lead.
Join us for a discussion moderated by Pulitzer-prize winning journalist and professor E.R. Shipp, with panelists Elaine Apter, League of Women Voters; Alice Giles, League of Women Voters, Howard County; Jacqueline Gray, Diversity Chair – AAUW Maryland; Baltimore City Councilwoman Odette Ramos – District 14; and Jocelyn C. Route, Town of Bladensburg Ward 1 Council Member. Registration is required.
This event was funded with a Maryland Humanities Voices and Votes Electoral Engagement Project (VVEEP) Support Grant through the “Why it Matters: Civic and Electoral Participation” initiative, administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils and funded by Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
