As we continue to protect our families and community by staying at home and social distancing, this event is virtual.
Our theme remains INCLUSIVENESS.
However, the PBS documentary, One Woman, One Vote will not be shown. Instead, we have a panel of experts to comment on voting inclusiveness and it will be followed by an open discussion.
TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE FILM, HERE IS A SYNOPSIS: This PBS documentary is a sweeping look at the women’s suffrage movement, from Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s famous Seneca Falls call to arms to the passage/ratification of the 19th Amendment, which guaranteed women voting rights. The film delves into the deep divisions within the suffrage movement, like the one over the question of whether to support voting rights for black men. In addition, the film looks at regional differences within the movement and differences over whether to use militant tactics. This documentary is available for purchase online.
Participation information will be provided to all registered attendees before the event occurs. Please register by Wednesday, June 3, 2020, if possible.
Denise Thomas President/Owner of The Effective Communication Coach — Denise shares her perspective on history and the importance of inclusivity today. She also engages other experts from our community to ensure a dynamic discussion. (Pictured left.) Panelists will be announced soon.
As before, our Event Host, Northwestern Mutual Women’s Employee Resource Group is helping to design the virtual experience.
Additional support is from the WERG at Michael Best and Friedrich. Members of the League of Women Voters will also add value to this robust discussion!
