Donate: The Women’s Right to Vote, 19th Amendment Monument
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 Nineteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution.
The 39 words that make up the 19th Amendment, the Right for Women to Vote In America, were formally introduced as a constitutional amendment January 1878 by United States Senator Aaron A. Sargent of Nevada City. Aaron and his wife Ellen Clark Sargent, both residents of Nevada City, were dedicated women’s suffrage advocates.
The Famous Marching Presidents think it is time we honor that part of Nevada City history and erect a statue to the Sargents and Nevada City’s role in that important human rights issue. You are asked to join us in that effort. More information and to Donate
