PITTSFORD 19TH AMENDMENT CENTENNIAL:
SOCIAL DISTANCING FIREWORKS DISPLAY 8/22, WALKING TOURS 8/18-31

This year - 2020 - marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment's ratification, which gave women in America the right to vote. Pittsford is honoring this important milestone and celebrating our history of supporting the women's suffrage movement.

We've planned a fireworks display in the Village for Saturday, August 22 that will allow for appropriate social distancing and health-safety measures - more information and guidance to come as the date approaches. Our self-guided walking tour will feature the people and places in Pittsford important to advancing women's voting rights. There will be a self-guided cemetery tour of the Pittsford Political Equality Club charter members' gravesites at Pittsford Cemetery as well. Tour information can be found via the links in the left column of this webpage; both tours will take place August 18 - 31.

We're also planning to host voter engagement tables in the community on August 18, 22 and 29. All activities will follow appropriate COVID-19 health safety and physical distancing guidelines. Event details will be posted on the Town and Village websites and shared on social media as the dates approach. We hope you will join us in the celebration and perhaps learn something new about women's suffrage in Pittsford!
