NJ Women Vote: The 19th Amendment at 100 - This multi-faceted programming initiative, launched in 2020, marks 100 years of women’s suffrage in the United States. To prepare for NJ Women Vote, the New Jersey Historical Commission, in collaboration with the Alice Paul Institute, has gathered over 70 partners across New Jersey, representing history and cultural organizations, women’s groups, government agencies, libraries, and higher education institutions. Together, partners have planned a yearlong series of events, programs, and projects across the state to mark the centennial. The New Brunswick Free Public Library is proud to be part of this statewide program.
