The Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Association is working to build a national memorial to commemorate and honor the millions of suffragists whose 72-year fight for enfranchisement culminated in the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920. The memorial’s opening, in August 2020, will celebrate the centennial of this “turning point” in American history for women.
We are in the process of creating a National Board of representatives from across the country to assist us in this important project. Board members will support us in various ways, including public awareness/education, developing plans for a democracy and leadership institute for young scholars, and donor outreach.
Do you know someone in your organization with an enthusiastic interest in women’s suffrage whom I could contact about serving as a representative on our board? Please direct recommendations to Karen Gladding, National Board Coordinator, 202-650-4189.
