The American Bar Association has set the theme of Law Day 2020 as “Your Vote, Your Voice, Our Democracy: The 19th Amendment at 100.” To celebrate, it will offer a virtual program next Thursday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. EDT in conjunction with the Law Library of Congress. The event will feature a panel discussing why and how we should commemorate the centennial of the 19th Amendment, how the suffrage movement and the amendment changed America, and whether the amendment still matters today. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Then on May 1, the ABA will unveil the results of its 2020 Survey of Civic Literacy. To receive the link to watch live from 12-12:30 p.m. EDT contact Betsy Adeboyejo, 202-662-1039.
