Get Involved In Your local Community
Find projects in your Local Area
The passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment was possible because local, state, and national organizations and activists fought together for change at every level of society and government. Today, local groups are banding together across the country to preserve local suffrage history and honor the ongoing work of women's equality. Discover what is happening in your state today for suffrage.
Across the country, events and programs large and small will celebrate and honor the work of America's suffragists. And we'll need dedicated volunteers to make it happen. Let's get going.
hire a Suffrage Scholar or Performer
There's never a dull moment when an Ida B. Wells historic interpreter walks into a room. So bring a suffrage scholar or performer to your next program, and watch the audience engage in new ways as they learn the story of suffrage from those who know it best.
2020 WVCI has partnered with the Votes for Women Trail from the National Collaborative for Women's History Sites to create a national, crowd-sourced, guided map of sites that were integral to the American suffrage movement. Become a historian and add sites from your local area to the map, or follow the trail and discover the depth of the fight for the ratification of the 19th amendment.
Establish a state commission
States across the US are establishing their own centennial commissions to support local groups working to honor the history of the suffrage movement. Are you ready to establish your own state-wide commission?
