You have the opportunity to become part of American history. How? By supporting the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Association, which is on track to build a national, garden-style memorial by 2020 – the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment. It will commemorate the thousands of women who fought for 72 years to win the vote for all American women and, once-and-for-all, set the record straight by including the entire suffrage movement history not just the parts male authors decided to include in our school text books.
A memorial is intended to capture a significant person or event in perpetuity. Did you know that only 8% of American monuments/memorials in the
U.S. are dedicated to women? Let’s do something about that and build a memorial that will educate, inspire, and empower present and future generations to remain vigilant in the quest for equal rights.
How can you help? Please make a donation! Funds must be raised privately (once it is built, NOVA Parks will maintain the memorial). Introduce us to your friends and organizations with whom our project will resonate. Help us identify vendors who will donate in-kind materials and labor to construct the memorial. Some of our national partners include the League of Women Voters, US, NAWBO and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
We can establish Giving Circles and you and your friends and family can have money allocated accordingly. A donation of a minimum of $1,000 will be included on our Donor Wall with your name or message. Make checks payable to TPSMA and mail to 5400 Ox Road, Fairfax Station, VA 22039 or pay electronically through our website www.suffragistmemorial.org. You can establish reoccurring, electronic payments to spread out your donation. Contact me any time with your questions – email@example.com or 703.201.3171
