The Susan B. Anthony birthday party each February packs a full house as a fundraiser for the Susan B. Anthony House in Rochester, New York. It's an annual occasion featuring an important speaker, and it's a valuable occasion for networking and honoring Anthony's life. SuffrageCentennials.com not only features Anthony's birthday but it also uses the occasion to encourage visits to the "Cradle" of the women's rights movement in the U.S. in the Finger Lakes region of New York State.
Suffrage Wagon News Channel and Suffrage Centennials are partners in the Spirit of 1776 campaign to restore the women's suffrage movement to its rightful place in American history. Suffrage Wagon Cafe is the online meeting place for those interested in the women's suffrage movement, a remarkable time in history. The cafe has distinctive programs, film, music, and lectures. Follow the Suffrage Wagon for updates on the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial project, as well as the statue project in NYC's Central Park where fundraising is underway to build a state of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. We cover suffrage friendly organizations such as the New York State Cultural Heritage Tourism Network and the New York State 2017 suffrage centennial celebration.
Suffrage Wagon News Channel is inspired by Edna Kearns, who represents our grandmothers, great grandmothers, family members and ancestors who worked over a period of 72 to win the right to vote for American women. Edna is best known for her "Spirit of 1776" suffrage wagon now in the collection of the New York State Museum. Marguerite Kearns is the host at the Suffrage Wagon Cafe. Follow on Facebook, Twitter, email and the quarterly newsletter.
