2020 Suffrage Centennial in the Context of Coronavirus

When the 2020 calendar produced by Syracuse Cultural Workers was published in 2019, no one could have predicted that the slogan “Hear Us Roar 2020” would apply to an international pandemic. Over the years we’ve been preparing for 2020. And the response has been overwhelming. This is because of the long-term advocacy for the upcoming observance on the local, state, and national levels. Over the long haul, the word has been spread and activities placed into action by regular people determined that this critical election year be acknowledged and noticed.

“HEAR US ROAR”

Over the past few weeks there has been an enormous wave of closings in order to halt the spread of a virus that has been overwhelming institutions, communities, and nations.

Don’t be surprised if the cancellation of events in the preparation stages comes to your community or organization or school, etc.

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!

If you marked your calendar for a special event or trip to celebrate the 2020 festivities, check first. “Hear Us Roar 2020” is an attitude that’s spreading. Let your voice be heard.

As of today, there are no women running for US president to represent a major political party in the United States. Even after 100 years of women voting, those interested in the nation’s top job have been disappointed in the outcome or have been advised that “women can’t win.”

MARCHING FOR OUR RIGHTS FOR MORE THAN 100 YEARS!

Women have been marching for their rights for more than 100 years.

Don’t forget this! Are we willing to march for another 100 years? How about 200? At what point does the following kick in?

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

Women constitute well over 50% of registered voters in the United States. Think about it!
