Centennial Tea: A Virtual Roundtable with Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner
The Seneca Falls Convention of 1848 was planned over tea, and now we’re having a tea party of our own. The women's suffrage movement was steeped in issues of exclusivity, but the “Centennial Tea: A Virtual Roundtable with Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner” welcomes everyone to the table!
Dr. Wagner’s presentation re-centers lesser known voices into the conversation, namely the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) women who inspired and influenced 19th century suffragettes. Our round table honors the progress that has been made while investigating what work still needs to be done.
One hundred years after women gained the right to vote, many of our citizens encounter voter suppression tactics at the polls. Now, more than ever, civic engagement is essential to the survival of our democracy. We encourage you to read up on current voting issues and bring your own thoughts and perspective to our virtual round table.
Please join us for an evening of critical discussion, collaboration, and celebration!
