Suffrage Rally and Parade
Leading off the rally are Representatives Susan Davis and Scott Peters (with Janine Davis standing in for the Honorable Scott Peters), followed by a welcome from Kate Sessions (Cath DeStefano).
Rally attendees will hear the stories of the lives of such leading suffragists as Elizabeth Cady Stanton (Judy Forman), Susan B. Anthony (Marti Kranzverg), Carrie Chapman Catt (Kay Ragan), Dr. Charlotte Baker (Ashley Gardner), Ellen Browning Scripps (Christina Marzocca), and Virginia Gildersleeve (Eunis Christensen). Anne Hoiberg serves as the emcee.
After Jeeni Criscenzo closes the rally with a poem at approximately 5:50 pm, we will march across Cabrillo Bridge to the Organ Pavilion to enjoy the Twilight Concert and a light picnic.
