About Us

Our History

Sonoma County is the birthplace of the National Women's History Alliance (NWHA), originally founded as the National Women's History Project in 1980. We are proud to be working with the NWHA as our fiscal sponsor and also as a chapter of the 

CA 2020 Women's Suffrage Project to create cooperative programming and events throughout Sonoma County celebrating this important centennial. 

 
 

Look for us at upcoming parades, events and bringing you new programs that are reflective of today which will launch us into making history for another 100 years. 

Our Kick-Off Event

Sonoma County 2020 Women's Suffrage Project is breaking ground on our year long centennial celebrations throughout Sonoma County. Celebrate with us right where women over a hundred years ago broke ground on a place to call their own - The Saturday Afternoon Club - 430 10th St., Santa Rosa, CA.   

Sunday, December 8 from 2-4PM our program will highlight how women in Sonoma County got out the vote to lead to the ratification of the 19th Amendment and how our project is honoring their achievements while creating more inclusive and inter-sectional engagement and voting access for all in our community.   

Celebrate with guest speakers, community groups dedicated to getting out the vote and empowering women, tea time and photo opportunities to make lasting memories.  

This event is free and space is limited: RSVP to socowomen2020@gmail.com
