Hunter Mill District News, August 19, 2020


Aug. 19, 2020

Dear Neighbors,

Next week on Wednesday, Aug. 26, we will be celebrating Women’s Equality Day 2020, which marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. As noted by the county's Commission for Women, while certainly an historic win for women's rights, the 19th Amendment did not guarantee suffrage for all women. Native Americans did not gain the right to vote until 1924. For Asian Pacific Islander Americans, it was 1952. African Americans and Latin Americans suffered voter suppression in the southern states until passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and 1975.
Fast forward to 2020 and following in the footsteps of the resolute suffragists, women are now registering to vote and turning out to vote in greater percentages than men. Even better news is that women are running for office in unprecedented numbers and are active in all levels of our government. This is all cause for celebration and I encourage all of you to take some time to enjoy one of the exhibits or events in Fairfax County that celebrate women's right to vote, including the Lucy Burns Museum as shown in the photo above:
  • Lucy Burns Museum at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton.
  • Drive-In Thursdays: Bold Women in History Film Series at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton.
  • Turning Point Suffragist Memorial, currently under construction on the grounds of Occoquan Regional Park - learn more.
  • Pop-Up Exhibitions & History Talks: In the City of Fairfax, visitors can stop by the Fairfax Museum and Visitor Center to see the traveling exhibition, “We Demand: Women’s Suffrage in Virginia,” on loan from The Library of Virginia through Sept. 7. A pop-up exhibit from the National Archives will follow, detailing the national story of the women’s suffrage movement. In September, several history talks will explore various topics related to the movement. Visit www.fairfaxva.gov for event dates and details.
Of course, the best way for us to honor the Suffragists is to make sure we all exercise our right to vote on Nov. 3!

Fairfax County is developing its first-ever Community-wide Energy and Climate Action Plan (CECAP) and your input is needed. Only three percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the county come from local government and school operations, the rest are from cars and trucks on our roads, energy use in our buildings, waste management processes, and other community sources. It’s up to all of us to take steps, even small ones, to reduce our emissions so that we are spared the consequences of climate change and can thrive in a clean, healthy, prosperous community.

Join one of three virtual upcoming public meetings and take the CECAP public survey to share your opinions and suggestions. Your input will be considered by the CECAP Task Force as they make decisions about climate change mitigation goals, strategies and actions we can take in the years to come.
