The event will feature a multi-racial panel of female activists who have been organizing as part of a national movement to bring full rights to immigrants of all colors. They will be talking about the essential role of immigrant women in leading the fight for unconditional amnesty, open borders, and an end to criminalization and discrimination based on citizenhip status. Panelists will include police accountability activist Mesha Monge-Irizarry, and María Elena Hernández, representing Mujeres Unidas y Activas.

On August 26th, 1920, after a 72-year struggle, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the U.S. was ratified, granting women the right to vote nationwide. In 1971, President Carter designated August 26th as Women's Equality Day, as a reminder of women's continuing efforts for equality.
