Exhibit: The Work Must Be Done: Women of Color and Voting Rights
Wednesday, September 28, 10am
Let's pay tribute to the women of color who participated in the fight for suffrage and developed a broader movement focused on voting equity. They have been largely forgotten - let's learn about them!
On Wednesday, September 28, 10am we will travel to the State Legislative Office Building, Hartford, to see this exhibit.
The Universalist Church of West Hartford is coordinating a postcard writing initiative through Reclaim Our Vote.

Democracy 2022 Connecticut is Common Cause CT's nonpartisan campaign to make sure candidates for statewide office in Connecticut are willing to make our state government work for all of us. They sent a nonpartisan survey out, asking candidates: if elected, what will you do for our democracy?
