BEND, OR -- This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. The Deschutes Historical Museum Executive Director, Kelly Cannon-Miller says they have learned that chalking sidewalks 100 years ago was a way for women suffragettes to get their message out. She says on Wednesday August 26th the community is invited to grab some chalk and write on the museum sidewalks, some or all, of either the text of the 19th Amendment or, the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
