It’s Women’s History month, let’s celebrate the League of Women Voters.
Since 1920 we have been an activist, a grassroots organization whose
leaders believed that voters should play a critical role in democracy.
The Women’s Suffrage movement is central to the identity of the League
of Women Voters. For the League, Women’s History Month is both an
opportunity to celebrate the contributions of women throughout history,
and a time to reflect on our origin story.
Learn about the successes and struggles of the US suffragists across the
country and right here in Tarrant County, virtually at 6:30 PM on March
9, 2023, as immediate past president and local historian Peggy Hendon
presents how the leadership of Clota Boykin impacted Tarrant County and
women’s efforts to gain the right to vote.
Speaking of the right to vote, Voter Services is already hard at work
preparing for the May 6th Elections. Educating ourselves and other voters
on the important issues of the day. We are committed to voter registration
and voter education, this was one of the driving forces behind the
formation of the League of Women Voters 110 years ago. We have several
great opportunities this month to register and educate citizens.
allow voters to hear directly from people running for
local offices. If you can’t attend in person, videos of the Forums will be
available on our Website and Facebook page.
Get involved! We need people to help with candidate forums. Voter
Services always welcomes volunteers. We need volunteers to observe the
County Commissioners Court, School Board, and City Council meetings.
