Please join us as we dedicate
a monument and a women’s suffrage marker honoring Gertrude Weil
and celebrate 100+ years of empowering
voters and defending democracy.
On October 7, 1920, following the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which secured for women the right to vote, Gertrude Weil called a meeting at the Guilford County Courthouse where she established and served as first president of North Carolina League of Women Voters.
Weil’s passion for equality and justice was inspired by Jewish teachings that “justice, mercy, [and] goodness were not to be held in a vacuum, but practiced in our daily lives.”
More than 100 years later, The North Carolina League of Women Voters of the Piedmont Triad will dedicate a monument and a women’s suffrage marker honoring Gertrude Weil.
The unveiling is scheduled for
Friday, October 7, 2022 at 11 a.m.
at the Guilford County Courthouse in Greensboro.
At the event, women are encouraged to wear suffragist attire or a hat representative of the 1920s.
All are welcome, and more details can be found by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
