The Women’s Rights Alliance of New York State will host a conference, “Women’s Rights and Justice in New York State, Past and Present,” in Syracuse in November 2019, along with a companion conference in 2020 in Seneca Falls.
A public planning meeting has been set for Monday, June 17th, at the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation, 210 E. Genessee Street, Fayetteville, from 1 to 4 pm.
The Conference is expected to be a discussion on how to keep New York’s legacy on Women’s Rights in the forefront of the nationwide 2020 Centennial Celebration.
The Women’s Rights Alliance of New York State is bringing together historical sites, organizations and people, for the purpose of promoting the history of women’s rights in New York State, how that history has impacted women’s rights throughout the United States, and how it sets the stage for continuing the unfinished work of women’s rights.
The Alliance Executive Committee includes Sally Roesch Wagner, Judith Wellman, Katie MacIntyre, Dot Willsey, Spike Herzig and Kim Harvish.
In addition, planning is underway for a number of women’s rights workshops across the State to educate participants in best ways to celebrate their attractions with visitors from around the globe.
This meeting is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. RSVP to the Women’s Rights Alliance of New York State by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (315) 521-3985.
