Voting is power! RJK students celebrate the 19th Amendment

During the past few months, six students at Robert J. Kaiser Middle School spent many lunches and after-school sessions creating five powerful images for “The Power of Women Voting/19th Amendment” project through IFC (International Fiber Collaborative) Projects.

The students created an overall theme using the 19th Amendment Flag as their unifying connector, and keeping to a simple color scheme including the yellow, violet and white of the flag.

The work will be displayed at Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Site in Hyde Park from April 1 through May 31, 2020.
