Centennial Celebration Activities
Suffrage Centennial Celebration is an organization whose mission is to bring people together in new ways to learn, honor and grow from the history of America’s suffragists, and proudly pass on their remarkable legacy—women’s right to vote—to educate and inspire women and men, girls and boys. Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Association is a Participating Partner is the weekend’s activity and will be visible throughout all events, including re-enactment of the Silent Sentinels each day of the weekend.
Among the planned activities is Take What Is Yours, the (too) little-known (true) story of how American women fought and won the right to vote. Composed in the words of Alice Paul, the National Woman’s Party and documents of the time, this stunning new production weaves virtuoso performances with striking visuals and a richly-layered sound score into a moving and inspiring story. This performance will be at the Lizner Auditorium at the George Washington University.
Other activities include presentations arranged by Turning Point Suffragists Memorial Association for visitors at the White House on Saturday, March 2 where Eleanor Clift was the speaker. The National Park Service requested our participation.
