She has the inside track on exciting events coming up to recognize the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.
Come and see your AAUW friends, meet new friends and peruse the Branch interest group and Community Action Project (CAP) tables, and see what the Board has planned for the upcoming year.
August, 26, 2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, where women took their rightful place in the voting booth. The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution establishing the Woman’s Equality 2020 Leadership Council, of which Sharon Bouska from our Branch is a member. The first county-wide task force met November 14, 2018, where over 40 leaders from the community began an introductory session to plan what a centennial celebration would look like. For more about the council and a schedule of upcoming meetings, see the link on the Santa Clara County Office of Women’s Policy website: Woman’s Equality 2020 Leadership Council. You can also check our BONFIRE newsletter for updates from our AAUW San Jose member on the Council, Sharon Bouska.
