A MESSAGE FROM TURNING POINT SUFFRAGIST MEMORIAL: “The courage, sacrifice and tenacity of five million quiet heroes who fought for 72 years to win the vote are the driving forces behind the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial, a visual symbol and national learning landmark to honor and commemorate their resolve and triumph. The #Donate20By2020 campaign celebrates the greatest expansion of democracy in a single day the world has ever seen—the “Turning Point” passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. #Donate20By2020 gives everyone the power to elevate this little-known, heroic suffrage story to its proper place in history.
Donate to celebrate a woman you love. Donate to celebrate a suffrage movement that put American women in the Constitution for the first time and continues to change lives. Contributions in any amount are welcome, but the #Donate20By2020 campaign includes special recognition – in honor or in memory – for donations of $20 or more.
Donate $20 (or more) for 2020.
Suffrage Centennials was showered with attention by New Mexico Press Women at the organization’s annual conference and awards banquet on April 25, 2015 with a first-place award as a non-profit blog. Judges said that the perspectives expressed on Suffrage Centennials represent a “great introduction” to the subject of the women’s suffrage movement and the upcoming centennial celebrations, as well as being “a great topic” in its own right. NMPW is New Mexico’s largest inclusive media organization.
The year, 2020, is the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Prepare now for the celebration.

We’re coming down to the wire. Every year we circulate our Santa wish list. Take a look at our wish list for December 2014. We wished for a funded New York State suffrage centennial commission. NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed legislation creating and funding a suffrage centennial commission from 2017 through 2020, the nation’s suffrage centennial when American women will have been voting for 100 years.
This year, 2016, we’re asking Santa for a miracle: a presidential citizens medal for our nation’s suffrage martyr, Inez Milholland. This year, 2016, is the centennial observance of her death on November 25, 1916. Visit the centennial web site for details. InezMilhollandCentennial.com The citizens medal application has been sponsored and supported by the National Womens History Project.
We’re carrying forward two wishes from the past: a national women’s suffrage memorial as proposed and being planned by Turning Point Suffragist Memorial. And a statue in NYC’s Central Park honoring Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and many others. Let’s support the completion of a memorial and a women’s statue in Central Park on or before the national 2020 suffrage centennial. To these wishes, we’ve added the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution!
