Instead of New Year’s resolutions this year, throw five pennies into the wishing well! We’ve announced three wishes: a funded commission to plan New York State’s suffrage centennial celebration in 2017. Plus a statue of real women in New York City’s Central Park and a suffragist memorial on or before the 2020 suffrage centennial observance. Support the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial and the Statue Project in New York City‘s Central Park.
We’re holding the space open for you to add two more wishes! By declaring your intentions and wishes, you increase the chances of the wish being realized. In 2014 one of our wishes came true: the Harriet Tubman national park. Santa didn’t deliver on the “Votes for Women” trail in the “Cradle” of the women’s rights movement in the United States. So, we’ll carry this wish over this coming year.
SuffrageCentennials.com has two countdown clocks: One for the NYS suffrage centennial in 2017 and the other, a countdown clock for the national suffrage centennial in 2020. “Suffrage Centennial” isn’t a household reference at the moment, but public awareness is increasing day by day. That’s why we’re starting early. There’s a lot of catching up to do. And for this reason, SuffrageCentennials has a Facebook page, in addition to Twitter, email subscription and a quarterly newsletter. See links below.
