100th Year Celebration: Women Win the Vote! Pasadena Celebrates 2020

Centennial Float Chosen for the Tournament of Roses Parade

 

Together with women and men in every state, the Pasadena Celebrates 2020 initiative plans to hold a year of victory celebrations honoring women winning the vote, one hundred years ago. And what could be a better day for the first celebration than January 1, 2020?

In keeping with our history, we are building a glorious float that will appear in the 2020 Tournament of Roses Parade. The theme is Years of Hope. Years of Courage. and will portray the courage, hope, and persistence that was required to be victorious after a 72-year struggle for women’s equality and justice.

Please, won’t you donate whatever you can? Be a part of history! You’ll be so proud watching the Votes for Women float roll down Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena. Help us reach the goal of seeing the women of America featured — and our great victory recognized — in this renowned New Year’s Day parade.

CONGRATULATIONS... Dr. E. Faye Williams, 2019 National Women’s History Alliance Honorees

CONGRATULATIONS to Dr. E. Faye Williams, President/CEO of the National Congress of Black Women as one of 2019 National Women’s History Alliance Honorees Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence.

The National Women’s History Alliance will recognize and celebrate the 2019 Honorees on Saturday, March 30, 2019  at the Hamilton Restaurant in Washington, DC.

 

Dr. E. Faye Williams, Esq. has made her biggest mark as an activist for peace and human rights, having traveled and worked on issues around the world. In her book, The Peace Terrorists, she details a 40-day peace mission she undertook with 200 women from around the world for the purpose of working to prevent the first Gulf War. As an active civil and human rights leader, she continues to fearlessly protest injustice and brutal world-wide occupations. She is currently the National Chair of the National Congress of Black Women.

The theme for 2019 is “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence.”  This year honors women who have led efforts to end war, violence, and injustice and pioneered the use of nonviolence to change society. These Honorees embraced the fact that the means determine the ends and so developed nonviolent methods to ensure just and peaceful results.

For generations, women have resolved conflicts in their homes, schools, and communities. They have rejected violence as counterproductive and stressed the need to restore respect, establish justice, and reduce the causes of conflict as the surest way to peace. From legal defense and public education to direct action and civil disobedience, women have expanded the American tradition of using inclusive, democratic and active means to reduce violence, achieve peace, and promote the common good. From women’s rights and racial justice to disarmament and gun control, the drive for nonviolent change has been championed by visionary women. These women consciously built supportive, nonviolent alternatives and loving communities as well as advocating change. They have given voice to the unrepresented and hope to victims of violence and those who dream of a peaceful world.
