On November 18, 2019, Attorney General Clare E. Connors announced a campaign to teach children about the 19th Amendment (women’s right to vote) on the cusp of its 100th anniversary.  The Department of the Attorney General is conducting this campaign in partnership with the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission (WSCC) www.WomensVote100.org, the federal commission created by Congress to ensure a proper commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the 19th Amendment, and in cooperation with the Original Flat Stanley Project.

“It is vitally important that we all commemorate this anniversary,” said Attorney General Connors.  “Today is the day that Susan B. Anthony stood up for her right to vote” and “our office will be working with keiki to teach them how important this right is to all of us.” 

Nationwide, attorneys general joined Attorney General Connors and the WSCC in highlighting the centennial of women’s right to vote and teaching kids about Susan B. Anthony with a paper cutout.
