2020 Vision: Wisdom from 100 Years of Woman Suffrage

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, removing sex as a reason to deny someone the right to vote.  (Many women were still unable to vote, due to poll taxes, denial of the vote to Native Americans, etc. — but not because they were women.)

Our Leader, Jone Johnson Lewis, will reflect on 100 years of woman suffrage, including the lessons we can learn from the long struggle to win that right, and the long struggle before and after to make women’s full citizenship a reality.  Jone wrote on women’s history for About.com (now Thoughtco.com) for 19 years.

Music by Lindsey Wilson.

Ethics for Children meets concurrently with our Sunday programs. Please join us!

11 a.m. is gathering time, to meet and greet one another.  We start the formal program at 11:15 and usually end about 12:30.  After that, we have a time of informal conversation with some beverages and snacks.  Please feel free to bring some snacks to share!  

Our Ethics Matters theme for March is Wisdom: the practice of deep understanding, including examining what we have been taught.

Note on snow closings:  If the power is on, we’ll post a snow warning on our web page and on our Facebook page.  If the weather is iffy, please check before coming, and only come if it is safe to travel from where you are.
