About Pasadena 2020

In order to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, winning suffrage for women in America, a small group of women formed a planning committee to bring together the many individuals and groups in Pasadena, and its environs, to participate and work on the support for the Float and for activities throughout 2020.

This initiative is under the umbrella of the National Women’s History Alliance, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, committed to the goals of education, empowerment, equality and inclusion. The National Women’s History Alliance formerly, the National Women’s History Project, is a leader in promoting Women’s History and is committed to the goals of education, empowerment, equality, and inclusion.

In its starter year, 1980, the NWHP lead a coalition that successfully lobbied Congress to designate March as National Women’s History Month, now celebrated nationally. The project has established the theme for women’s history each year and provided resources and materials for education and celebration of the women honored.

In 2018, the project transitioned to the National Women’s History Alliance (NWHA) to better support the study and celebration of women’s history all year long, especially for the Suffrage Centennial, 2020. The NWHA continues to employ the collaborative spirit of the original project and works with women’s history organizations throughout the country to ensure that the incredible contributions of women are remembered and celebrated. Today, NWHA is known nationally as the only clearinghouse providing information and training in multicultural women’s history for educators, community organizations, and parents-for anyone wanting to expand their understanding of women contributions to U. S. history.
