Join Today's Silent Sentinels
Wednesday, August 26, 12 pm, Ocean Blvd., Long Beach
Come celebrate National Women’s Equality Day & the 19th Amendment! The Silent Sentinels of The Long Beach Suffrage 100 invite you to stand on Ocean Blvd. anywhere from Chestnut to Cherry in silence for one hour. August 26 is the 100th anniversary of the signing of the 19th Amendment.
We will honor the original Silent Sentinels by standing together in silence to demonstrate the importance of the 2020 VOTE and our support of the John Lewis Voting Advancement Act, H.R. 4.
Wear a mask, stand 6 feet apart in silence, and bring a sign -- make you own, e.g., "Equal Pay for Equal Work," "Get Out The Vote," or "Vote by November 3rd."
