Alice Paul Institute is celebrating its 30th year on March 19, 2015 by presenting the annual Alice Paul Equality Awards to its “Founding Mothers,” the organization’s eleven original board members. The birth of what’s now known as the Alice Paul Institute dates back to a small group of South Jersey NOW- Alice Paul Chapter members who were inspired by the Equal Rights Amendment. Their first task was to raise funds to purchase Alice Paul’s papers at auction, followed by the group’s incorporation as the Alice Paul Centennial Foundation. Then came the daunting task of raising the funds to purchase and save Paulsdale, Alice Paul’s childhood home. All of this happened and now after 30 years, the Alice Paul Institute is an established suffrage history-friendly organization with its tenacles in local, state, national and international issues and projects. The Alice Paul Equality Awards event will be held from 6-9 p.m. on March 19th at the Westin Mount Laurel, 555 Fellowship Road, Mount Laurel, NJ.
