“Spirit of 1776” wagon is symbol of patriotic protest! on Vimeo.

Suffrage Wagon News Channel is part of the effort to make August 26th a national holiday. 

Some other examples of our advocacy:

(1.) Our initiative to support the New York State Museum in putting the “Spirit of 1776” suffrage campaign wagon on permanent exhibit. Press release. Article that appeared in Newsday (Long Island), June 2015.

(2.) The outreach associated with the opening of the Suffrage Wagon Cafe with programs spread over a four-day period and programs monthly throughout 2015.

We’re persistent in our goal of inspiring, motivating, educating, and entertaining audiences about how we stand on strong shoulders. The “Spirit of 1776” award-winning music video inspires and informs the “Spirit of 1776” campaign.
