Beginning August 26 through September 2, La Cañada Flintridge City Hall will be illuminated in purple and gold in participation with the Forward Into Light campaign, a nationwide partnership celebrating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment.
On August 18, 1920, Tennessee became the 36th state needed to ratify the proposed 19th Amendment that granted women the constitutional right to vote. On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment was certified and made law. To commemorate the centennial anniversary, on August 26, 2020, government agencies across the country will light their buildings, facilities and landmarks in purple and gold, the colors of the women’s suffrage movement.
“We are honored to join municipalities, organizations and historic landmarks from around the country as we commemorate this centennial anniversary,” said Mayor Michael T. Davitt. “We look forward to celebrating this milestone in American history.”
Those participating in the campaign will share images on social media using the #ForwardIntoLight.
