We walk in our ancestors’ shoes to understand more fully what the situation was like over 100+ years ago. Then we shift back into receiving the torch of freedom from prior generations and adjusting activism to what we’re facing today. This is what happens to me when I view the long and difficult campaigning efforts to expand voting rights. Prior generations primarily consisted of volunteers. They did what they could and passed the torch to the next generation to celebrate the accomplishments and tackle the ongoing challenges.

SuffrageCentennials.com couldn’t go offline after the 2020 suffrage centennial. There’s still work to be done. We’ve been publishing since 2013.
