Join the California Women's Campaign and the Sacramento Chapter of NWPC in celebrating the 19th amendment by participating in a silent call for voter participation on Saturday, October 10.
"From 1917 to 1919, a group of determined women stood silently in front of the White House in protest of President Woodrow Wilson’s lack of support for women’s right to vote. They wore distinctive purple, white and gold sashes and held signs with slogans like, “Mr. President, how long must we wait for liberty?”
On October 10 — The day women in California got the vote in 1911 — you will see today’s Silent Sentinels on busy street corners throughout the Sacramento area urging people to exercise their right to be heard.
Join us to honor The Silent Sentinels who fought for the 19th Amendment so the nation finally included women in “we the people”. Look for us dressed in purple, white and gold with our “Vote” signs. Invite your friends, your family to participate.
Masks are required and we will practice social distancing." -Event Description from Eventbrite
