In light of recent events in the world of American politics, the National Susan B Anthony Museum & House has reiterated its nonpartisan educational mission in a statement to the press distancing itself from conservative organizations using Susan B. Anthony’s name.
Presidential candidate Donald Trump has announced his intention to create a “pro-life coalition” headed by Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List. This coalition would work to support Trump’s previously declared commitments to the anti-abortion movement and to encourage voter turnout in key battleground states.
The Susan B. Anthony List is a 501(c)(4) organization, which, along with its affiliated political action committee, the SBA List Candidate Fund, has long raised concerns for the Anthony Museum and those dedicated to protecting the legacy of the great reformer. “Neither organization is in any way affiliated or in partnership with the National Susan B Anthony Museum & House,” the Museum’s statement said.
The National Susan B Anthony Museum & House, a 501(c)(3) educational entity, is dedicated to preserving and interpreting Anthony’s life and work in a historically accurate and responsible manner. It is not affiliated with any other organization bearing the name of Susan B Anthony.
