Resource Packet for Local Programs
A packet of resources for local Leagues to organize programs and events on women’s suffrage history has been mailed to every local League – and a new page has been created on the state website with links to all the info, as well as a calendar to see what events are scheduled, and a blog on significant events and locations in women’s history in NYS. Check out at all the resources at http://www.lwvny.org/programs-studies/womens-suffrage/index.html. You might find a book or movie that you’d like to read or watch together with some League friends!
LWVUS has created a new logo to be used during these next 4 years to celebrate the League’s 100th anniversary. We have customized it for NYS (on left). We have also created buttons that are for sale from the state office (on right) for $1 plus tax and shipping.
