Create a Women's Suffrage Centennial Commission
In 2017, it will be 100 years since New York State signed woman suffrage into law, three years before the US passed the 19th Amendment. Don’t let 2017 pass us by leaving yet another anniversary unfunded by the State. Instead, let us seize the opportunity to celebrate grandly, with robust opportunities for heritage tourism, education, and community conversations all across our state. The New York Council for the Humanities, a trusted provider of grants and services for the state’s cultural sector, stands ready to launch NY's commemoration.
The Women's Rights Movement Legacy: 1917-2017
New York State was home to the leaders of the movement as well as many lesser-known figures whose stories deserve to be told too. From Seneca Falls and the Susan B. Anthony House in Rochester to countless heritage sites across the state, let's celebrate our state and nation's legacy of women's rights and progress!
Urge Governor Cuomo to Take Action
A bill establishing a Commission passed unanimously by both the NYS Assembly and Senate (A01019A/S02388-A). It’s time for the Governor to make it law! We are so close—join us in urging Governor Cuomo to sign the bill today.
