Passing the Activist Spirit-Passing the Torch-Preserve voting rights!

ACKNOWLEDGING THE PAST AND BUILDING TOWARD THE FUTURE FOR SUFFRAGE CANETENNIALS. . .

We celebrated 100 years of women voting in 2020 with so many events and suffrage centennial celebrations/

We made terrific progress in 2021 in bringing awareness of our past into the present and future. SuffrageCentennials.com supports building on the accomplishments and challenges of the past and bringing them forward into the present and future.

The following marker was installed in 2018 on the main street of Huntington, New York.

And in 2021, the City of Long Beach, New York installed a historic marker on its website. Photo by Antonia Petrash.

We’re passing the torch of freedom and voting rights.

Santa was listening to Suffrage Centennial wishes! And it works…


Make a New Year’s resolution in support of making August 26th the first national holiday commemorating the contributions of women! Sign today.

Santa was listening to our last-minute holiday appeals! on Vimeo.

Someone was listening when in the past we made it clear what we wanted. A national women’s “Votes for Women” trail and much more.

SANTA DELIVERS FOR HUMAN AND VOTING RIGHTS

At the end of 2021, so much progress has been made on a national Votes for Women Trail that it is astonishing.

In June of 2021, the City of Long Beach (New York) installed a historic marker funded by the Pomeroy Foundation commemorating Edna Kearns and other activists and their visit to Long Island in 1913 to campaign for voting rights.

PASSING A TORCH FROM ONE ACTIVIST GENERATION TO ANOTHER IS ESSENTIAL

Perhaps my grandmother’s generation didn’t end racism and ageism and sexism and more. But they did what they could. There were tens of thousands of citizens who in some way made a difference. It’s possible they couldn’t pass a purity test compiled by those of us today. But have we ended racism and ageism and sexism and more? We’re doing what we can and passing the torch to activists in the future.
