100 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE 19TH AMENDMENT August 18 | 10AM - 2 PM
Snowmass Base Village Gondola Plaza
This August marks the 100 year anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution. Honoring this, Aspen Snowmass, alongside Aspen Historical Society, will be hosting an activation in the Snowmass Base Village Gondola Plaza August 18 from 10 AM to 2 PM. This event will include opportunities to:
- Register to vote
- Explore resources about modern voter issues
- Speak with educators from Aspen Historical Society to answer questions and speak to the historically significant passage of the 19th Amendment, the immense effort it took to sign into law, the voter groups that the Amendment left out, and how voter equality has been a continuous journey across multiple centuries.
- A pop-up display titled Rightfully Hers will provide historical context about the 19th Amendment. Presented by the National Archives in partnership with the Women's Suffrage Centennial Commission, the display is “part of a nationwide initiative that explores the generations-long fight for universal women suffrage.”
This day is both a reminder and a call to action. We still have work to do. But it is going to take all of us, together. Join us!
