Law Day 2020

The Law Day theme that the American Bar Association has chosen for 2020 is “Your Vote, Your Voice, Our Democracy: The 19th Amendment at 100.” This theme celebrates the 100th anniversary of the constitutional amendment that guaranteed the right of citizens to vote would not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of sex.

Resources can be found on the ABA web site as well as many other sites. This theme can be used throughout the fall to tie into the upcoming 2020 election.

Nineteenth Amendment: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.” The Amendment was first introduced in 1878 and took until Aug. 18, 1920, to clear the final hurdle of obtaining agreement from three-fourths of the states.
