Sonoma County 2020 Women's Suffrage Project Kick-off Celebration

Sonoma County 2020 Women's Suffrage Project is breaking ground on our yearlong centennial celebrations throughout Sonoma County in 2020. Come celebrate with us right where women over a hundred years ago broke ground on a place to call their own - The Saturday Afternoon Club. 


Join us on Sunday, December 8 from 2-4PM to learn more about how women in Sonoma County got out the vote to lead to the ratification of the 19th Amendment and how we are 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.

Hosted by Sonoma County 2020 Women's Suffrage Project and sponsored by National Women's History Alliance, Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, Sonoma County Library, Sonoma County Commission on the Status of Women, Sonoma County Democratic Party, Santa Rosa Democratic Club, and UppercaseTea.
