This year, Constitution Day will focus on the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution: Women's Right to Vote. Due to COVID-19, it will be a virtual event that will include three short videos (~15 minutes) that professors might assign as on-demand options that might work best for 2020.
This year marked the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. It was a vital catalyst in expanding
LGBTQ+ activism nationwide and abroad. Join in UCF’s discussion about how this watershed event
played a significant role in changing the perception of equal rights and protection of civil rights.
The League of Women Voters will be on hand to discuss voting rights.
