Opening Reception: Women Get the Vote: A Historic Look at the 19th Amendment
Tuesday, January 29, 2019 - 6:00 PM | Members' Room | for members and guests | free of charge | registration required
Library members and guests are cordially invited to celebrate this new exhibition devoted to the legendary women’s suffrage movement, a crusade that culminated in 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Author Brooke Kroeger speaks about the roles of both men and women in that historic struggle. More about the exhibition here.
Library member Brooke Kroeger is the author of The Suffragents: How Women Used Men to Get the Vote, which won the Gold Medal in U.S. History in the 2018 Independent Publisher Book Awards. Kroeger is a professor at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.
The evening will also feature a one-night display of Members' Loans having to do with the suffrage movement. We encourage you to look in closets, cupboards, and attic trunks for suffrage memorabilia, including posters, banners, pins, books, photographs and letters. Blow off the dust and bring them to us. To arrange for the loan, please contact Harriet Shapiro, Head of Exhibitions, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-288-6900 x221.

Please join us at UCLA Law on Saturday, February 23, 2019, for consideration of topics relevant to animal agribusiness practices at odds with public values associated with animal protection, fair labor practices, and environmental protection. There will be three panels: one dealing with undercover investigations and the possibility for advocates in different social justice movements to coordinate or use reliable information from each other's investigations, another on labeling issues (including empirical research on whether consumers are confused by plant-based products labeled as "milk," labeling for marketing plant-based meat alternatives to consumers in India, and the use of lethal animal experimentation in the development and marketing of products labeled "vegan" and "plant-based), and a third panel on corporate agreements to engage in practices at a higher level of worker or environmental or animal protection than is required by law. This conference is free of charge and open to the public. Parking at UCLA is $12 for the day.
