Panel Discussion: Perspectives on the Suffrage Centennial

Women of the Nation Arise! brought together a panel of scholars and experts to advise the development of the exhibition and examine the contributions of Staten Island’s suffragists, present-day issues of political equality, and voter participation. Join us with Zoom to hear firsthand the conclusions reached by the panel about Staten Island’s role in expanding voting rights – a core principle of American government.
