August 26th, 1920 was the day the 19th Amendment (giving women in the US the right to vote) was certified as law.

Stop by anytime to register to vote/update your address, enjoy a cup of specialty Zola tea, and to join us in hand-writing the constitution. Inspired by artist Morgan O’Hara, we will have supplies available to anyone who wants to copy some or all of this document that is often referenced, but may not be as familiar to us as it should be:

“Hand copying a document can produce an intimate connection to the text and its meaning. The handwriter may discover things about this document that they never knew, a passage that challenges or moves them. They may even leave with a deeper connection to the founders and the country, or even a sense of encouragement.”
