Come be inspired and learn about the hidden histories of the civil rights and suffragist movements. Come register to vote, request your ballot, and discover initiatives that secure and defend the right to vote for all citizens of the United States.
Join us on August 29th as US citizens living in Switzerland, friends, and allies gather together to commemorate two foundational victories for voting rights: the 55th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act and the Centennial of the 19th Amendment, both passed in August. These victories were hard won through steadfast commitment on the ground and a resolute belief in the righteous promise of equal representation for all. They remind us that democracy is precious; they re-affirm our commitment to Get Out The Vote in November.

We will lounge in the relaxed outdoor setting at the Fork & Bottle in Zurich, to enjoy music, poetry, literary readings, and historical documents, and explore the untold stories and experiences of diverse people who have fought for political representation throughout the United States and across time.
We will celebrate those who have organized for the right to vote and those who continue to work for a more perfect union with true representation for all. We will re-affirm our commitment to racial and gender equity and continue our initiatives to Get Out the Vote for November 2020.
