19th Amendment Centennial Patch Program-Girl Scouts of all ages
August 1, 2020 - July 1, 2021Free
Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England invites Girl Scouts of all ages to complete steps to earn a commemorative XIX: Shall Note be Denied patch. Requirements range from discovering the history of the Women’s Rights Movement to writing your own suffragette speech. Get creative and have fun while learning about the 19th Amendment!
In the year 2020, the United States marks an important milestone for women’s suffrage, the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The core value of the legislation states that “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.” To highlight this pivotal moment in our nation’s history, GSSNE has partnered with the Rhode Island Historical Society and Secretary of State Nellie M. Gorbea to create a patch program for Girl Scouts of all age levels. To earn your GSSNE XIX: Shall Not Be Denied patch, complete the required number of steps for your age level and purchase the commemorative patch in the GSSNE Girl Scout shop in Warwick (while supplies last). Free to participate, commemorative patch is $2.50
This is an on-going event started on Feb 1st, 2020.
