City Councilors Voice Support For Women’s Rights

City Councilors Voice Support For Women’s Rights

City Councilors are showing their support for the 19th amendment to the U.S. constitution. They are urging local residents to observe the August 26th anniversary of the 1920 amendment that gave America’s women the right to vote. Kobby Hoffman (pictured) of our area’s chapter of the National Organization for Women has been lobbying local governments for years to adopt resolutions supporting women’s rights. The Albemarle Supervisors are doing something different this year. Most of the supervisors want to create their own resolution that will honor groups such as the Sexual Assault Resource Agency.
