The Upper Keys League of Women Voters and the Upper Keys Business and Professional Women invite the community to join them on September 17th as they host the 2nd annual Constitution Day Celebration.
This year the event will feature Dr. Carolyn Jefferson-Jenkins, an educator, activist, advocate, author, and historian. Dr. Jefferson-Jenkins served as the 15th President of the League of Women Voters of the United States and President of the Colorado Springs Business and Professional Women. The topic of the presentation will be “An America as Good as its Promise.”
Also at the event, the winners of a student essay contest will be presented. The topic of the essay is “Women Power the Vote.” Local middle and high school students have been asked to tell us how we can honor the strong women who persisted in their fight to vote despite many obstacles and what is the best way to use this power.
The event will also include a presentation on the proposed constitutional amendment 3 – Open Primaries.
Representative Debbie Murcarsel Powell will be attending and will honor the life of Pascal Weisberger by presenting a flag to his father during the event.
