Please join us for a presentation by U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen on the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act upon conclusion of the League 10-11 AM business meeting.  

On October 17, 2017, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act, legislation led by U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) to commemorate Frederick Douglass--a pioneering supporter of the women’s suffrage movement. The bill would establish a commission to honor and celebrate Frederick Douglass in 2018, the 200th anniversary of his birth.
