100th Anniversary of 19th Amendment

August 18, 2020

TODAY marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which added the following to our Constitution: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex” (although minority women still endured restrictions for year to come). Inspired by the resilience and dedication of suffragists like Rochester’s Susan B. Anthony, Mercy recognizes their hard-fought battle and reminds all women, young and old, to fight for their voices to be heard. To celebrate the progress paved by Anthony and her fellow suffragists for women’s rights, Mercy is organizing a team for the virtual “Suffragist City Parade” on Saturday, September 12 at 10 a.m. Visit our team page for more information about how to sign up for this free event! https://bit.ly/mercy19thwalk
