th birthday of the League of Women Voters founded on February 14, 1920.


“The League of Women Voters has been integral in fulfilling our nation’s Constitution by ensuring that women have the ability to exercise their civil right to vote. Today we celebrate the significant contribution they have made for women and America.


“It is because of the commitment of organizations such as the League of Women Voters that I have the opportunity to serve New York’s 11th Congressional district and our nation. In the Rotunda of the nation’s Capitol, a statue of Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton celebrate three pioneers of women’s suffrage and continues to remind us of the work still to be done for women’s rights.


“With Leagues in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, the League of Women Voters has expanded their reach in educating citizens to become actively involved in our government and to influence public policy. It is with great respect that I recognize the 88 years of civil rights activism by the League of Woman Voters, and I commend them on their continued and future work in the years ahead.”
