New York Women’s Suffrage Centennial Conference

Please mark your calendar for the upcoming New York Women’s Suffrage Centennial Conference on Friday, October 7, 2016 at Waterloo/Seneca Falls, NY. It will be a dynamic meeting where educational and break-out sessions will help you plan and coordinate women’s rights and suffrage history events in your village, town, region, and community. You will learn where you can get grants and funding for your local programming for 2017.

Lt. Gov. & 2017 New York State Women’s Suffrage Centennial Chair Kathy Hochul and United States Senator Kirstin Gillibrand will be speaking to us! 

I will share how the City of Beacon, NY, collaborated to apply for and dedicate the Margaret Fuller Historic Marker through the Pomeroy Foundation grant.

What An Honor!

I have been invited to be on the Advisory Board of the Margaret Fuller Society as MFS President Phyllis Cole envisions expanding the scope of the Society to embrace all those working to make Margaret Fuller known and visible in various ways through their gifts and passion for her life and work for women’s rights and social justice. It will be an honor to work within this community of devoted Margaret Fuller scholars to complement and enhance each other’s work for our mutually-shared benefit of communicating the extraordinary life of Margaret Fuller.
