December 23rd, 2019

(Albuquerque, New Mexico)  -- The National Hispanic Cultural Center, in partnership with the City of Albuquerque and the League of Women Voters of Central New Mexico, has launched a New Mexico master calendar of events celebrating the one hundredth anniversary of the U.S. women’s vote.

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote. New Mexico ratified the 19th Amendment on February 21, 1920.

This historic centennial offers New Mexico communities an opportunity to commemorate this milestone with celebrations, lectures, workshops, readings, presentations and other events. The purpose of the master calendar is to promote events statewide.
