July Charity of the Month

The WTOP Charity of the Month is 

 

Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Association is raising funds to build a national memorial to honor the millions of suffragists who fought more than seven decades to win the vote for women. It’s another hidden piece of women’s history even though it was a national campaign that included incidents of arrests, jail, torture and even death. The memorial will ensure that the suffrage story is elevated to its proper place in history and will educate present and future generations on the need for eternal vigilance for equal rights.  As author, Eleanor Clift, writes, “the suffragists engineered the greatest expansion of democracy in a single day that the world had ever seen, and yet…the leaders built no monuments to themselves, and too many of their names have been lost to history.”

Please help us to bring to light the “best kept secret in American history.”
