THE STORY:

In 1945, a handful of women decided there should be a memorial to Susan B. Anthony, who dedicated her whole life so that we could enjoy the rights and freedoms that are now ours.  They purchased the house in Rochester, NY, that had been her home for 40 years. It's where she was arrested for daring to vote in 1872, and it was the headquarters of the National American Woman Suffrage Association when she was its president. It's a modest brick home in a city neighborhood where the median household income is $20,000.  We have an after school program on Wednesdays for neighborhood kids. We offer inspiring workshops for women in recovery. We have a variety of programs for school children, Girl Scouts, and adults.  Last year, we had visitors from all 50 states and 30 countries. We are a recognized National Historic Landmark and we are a chartered museum. We have priceless artifacts like her trademark alligator purse and black silk dress and the bed in which she died. 

We should have lots of financial support. We should have an endowment. But the truth is that we are keeping Susan B. Anthony's legacy alive much the way she did her work for human rights: one day at a time. We have a handful of staff who organize the programs, train the volunteers, and lovingly and responsibly care for our treasures. We have 110 dedicated volunteer docents (tour guides) who greet every guest and passionately tell the story of this great reformer who led one of the greatest non-violent revolutions in the world.

Susan B. Anthony said, "When I am gone. . .pass by, and go on with the work."  Until every woman and girl around the globe has the rights and freedoms that Susan B Anthony championed, we will tell her story to continue the movement and inspire change. Honor Susan B. Anthony today by saying "Thank you!" with a gift, and we will share her story on your behalf tomorrow.
