WEBINAR-Nellie Francis, Champion of Women's Equality and Racial Justice

Event Description

Co-hosted by Ramsey County Bar Association
and Ramsey County Law Library

Deadline to Register online is September 30, 2020*

If you want to register after September 30, send an email to kharo@mnbars.org.

Currently, all bar association programming is REMOTE-ONLY participation. There will be NO in-person attendance until further notice. Thank you.

Dr. Green’s presentation will be on Nellie Francis who both participated in leading the campaigns for women's suffrage in 1919 and (in the wake of the lynchings of three black men in Duluth in 1920) drafted and successfully lobbied the bill to make lynching a crime.

This virtual CLE presentation will take place from noon to 1PM, and it will feature Nellie Francis exclusively.  As a result of the positive community response to the unveiling of the Judge Stephen L. Maxwell portrait, the Ramsey County Law Library Board will be postponing the unveiling of this important leader in our judicial community. Based on all of the feedback, the Board wants this historic moment to be celebrated in a manner commensurate with its significance.
