A COMMUNICATION DISTRIBUTED AT SUFFRAGE WAGON CAFE:

Dear Friends,

You may be a votes for women, first wave women’s rights descendant, and not know it.

There are millions of us. Chances are—you may not as yet uncovered your essential role in US history.

YOU MAY BE A SUFFRAGE DESCENDANT AND NOT KNOW IT!

If you are a hidden descendant, you aren’t alone. Tens of thousands of women and their allies spent decades working for the right to vote from 1848 (and before) through 1920. They have descendants, and you, like many others, haven’t yet uncovered this part of your family history.

That you may be descended from the first wave of American voting rights activists shouldn’t be passed over lightly. Many families didn’t mention this association and organizing priority to their children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and other descendants.

Are there interests you have and activities that you’ve not mentioned to friends and family members? Of course.

AN IMPORTANT PART OF OUR NATION’S LEGACY…THE 2020 SUFFRAGE CENTENNIAL!

Even if you can’t prove a direct family connection, the first wave of the women’s rights movement in the United States is an important and essential part of our national legacy and history…whether you’re a young person, woman, man, or wherever you find yourself on the gender continuum.

The chances are excellent that you are descended, either directly or by interest, to the tens of thousands of voting rights activists and their allies who worked and sweated for decades to win the right to vote during the first wave of the women’s rights movement. If you aren’t directly related, you may be a descendent in some other way—spiritual or because of your interests and concerns.

INCREASING NUMBERS OF PEOPLE INTERESTED IN 2020 SUFFRAGE CENTENNIAL

There are many citizens who define themselves as first wave women’s rights descendants simply because they are passionate about this part of American history. By combining the accomplishments of all the waves of rights activists through today, we find ourselves standing on strong shoulders.

Our place in history will be celebrated during 2020, and we want to make sure you’re part of this turning point in time. Some people call this coming year the celebration of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution. It’s also known as the women’s vote centennial, the suffrage centennial 2020, the votes for women centennial.

CELEBRATE WOMEN’S FREEDOM TO VOTE IN 2020

Celebrate women’s freedom to vote during 2020. That’s why you’re being contacted now. So we’ll be ready during 2020 to be heard, loud and clear.

All the best,

Marguerite Kearns
