At the Monday, August 17 Elk River City Council meeting, Mayor Dietz proclaimed August 26, 2020, as Women’s Equality Day. 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote. The Women’s Vote Centennial Initiative, a collaboration of women-centered institutions, organizations, and scholars from across the United States, works to ensure that this anniversary, and the 72-year fight to achieve it, are commemorated and celebrated throughout the United States.
We were honored to have three representatives from local Girl Scout Troop 15277 at Monday’s meeting to receive the proclamation from Mayor Dietz.
