Help is needed to crowd-fund an effort to document the stories of women activists by raising $75,000 before Women’s Equality Day, August 26, 2015.
WomensActivism.NYC is the hub for a five-year celebration of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial in New York City. The first big event, “Declaration of Sentiments: The Remix, A Celebration of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial and the 200th Birthday of Elizabeth Cady Stanton” is planned for November 12, 2015. The Cooper Union will co-host an evening of music, performance, dance, comedy and poetry.
In 2016 WomensActivism.NYC will turn its efforts to voter registration and will host a women’s film festival. In 2017 there will be a full program to celebrate NYS’s suffrage centennial. Throughout the following years through to 2020, an on-line campaign will tell the stories of unsung women activists. In 2020 there will be a day of service and celebration of the 19th Amendment to the U.S, Constitution that gave women in the United States the right to vote and full citizenship. Make a donation now to fund the women’s suffrage centennial events in NYC.
