There is a one-time event this summer, August 4-7, at the National Susan B Anthony Museum & House in Rochester NY. Tours, talks and entertainment have combined in such a way to create an in-depth experience in the story of the 19th century with the development of the great social revolution called the Women’s Suffrage Movement.
The Susan B Anthony Legacy Trip invites participants to become part of “Her Story” on this 4-day, 3-night visit to historic Rochester and Finger Lakes region of New York, August 4-7, 2014.
Participants will have an opportunity to: get inside Susan B Anthony’s life and her work for women’s equality; learn from experts in their fields with in-depth presentations about suffrage, abolition, the Underground Railroad, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Frederick Douglass, and more; hear behind-the-scenes stories that are rarely told of key reformers and their work; see artifacts seldom available for public viewing; discover the remarkable Anthony family and the work her parents, siblings, and subsequent generations of the family did for abolition, suffrage, equality, and other social causes; and learn about leadership in the Anthony tradition.
Included in the trip are: hotel accommodations for 3 nights (double occupancy); transportation to all events; 3 breakfasts, 1 lunch, 3 dinners; a special New York State wine tasting; a scenic drive through the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of New York, and Unique entertainment about Suffrage and its champions.
