2020-11-13 - New Jersey - Online - 2020 New Jersey History Conference: Battles for the Ballot

The New Jersey Historical Commission (NJHC) is pleased to announce Battles for the Ballot, the 2020 NJ History Conference.
About this Event
The New Jersey Historical Commission (NJHC) will host the 2020 New Jersey History Conference, Battles for the Ballot, virtually on Friday, November 13, 2020. The history of voting rights and suffrage in New Jersey is one of the competing visions of who deserves a voice in American society.
For centuries, activists, policymakers, and everyday people have fought to define that vision, especially on the basis of race and gender. As New Jersey marks the 150th anniversary of the 15th Amendment and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment—against the backdrop of a presidential election year and a global pandemic—Battles for the Ballot will explore how the right to vote has changed over time and the meaning of participation and representation in a democracy.
