In this exhibition, visitors can learn how the League of Women Voters of Greeley-Weld County affects change in our local community.
Suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt created the League of Women Voters on February 14, 1920- just a few months after the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Catt aimed to educate and empower women to use their newfound voting rights. What first started as a national organization soon spread to the state level and again to the local level. The Greeley chapter began in 1931, but it was called the Women Citizens League. Though it changed its name a few years later, the group remains active in the local community today.
