Have you ever wondered if there’s a suffragist in your family tree?

Thousands of women and some men tirelessly advocated for women’s voting rights during the 19th and 20th centuries, yet their names remain largely unknown to us today. However, their legacy lives on through their descendants, numbering in the hundreds of thousands.

Join us for an engaging exploration of suffragists’ forgotten stories. In this unique event, we’ll delve into the lives of these remarkable individuals who played a crucial role in securing women’s right to vote.

Led by Amanda Owen, Executive Director of the Justice Bell Foundation, we’ll uncover untold tales from our ancestors who passionately fought for equality.

Event Highlights:
- Explore your own genealogy & discover possible family ties to suffragists and learn about their impact
- Amanda Owen will share insights from a groundbreaking oral history project dedicated to unraveling the struggles and triumphs of suffragists
- Hear about the unsung heroes and heroines who paved the way for the 19th Amendment, now celebrated as Women's Equality Day

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with the past and be inspired by the resilience and determination of suffragists.

Let us come together to honor the legacy of these trailblazers and celebrate the progress achieved through their sacrifices.
