It’s Election Day!!

Happy Tuesday!! It’s Election Day and I am getting ready to head to the polls and cast my vote. It’s a privilege that I do not take for granted. I am reminded of the women of the past who sacrificed themselves to make this a reality and with the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920 after almost a century of speeches, petitions and marches, women were granted the right to vote.

I think it’s important to take a moment and remember those who helped make this a reality and remind ourselves how lucky we are that they fought for us.

Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906)

Alice Paul (1885-1977)

Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902)

Lucy Stone (1818-1893)

Ida B. Wells (1862-1931)

Frances E.W. Harper (1825–1911)

Mary Church Terrell (1863-1954)

Thank you for fighting, for having the courage to take a stand, for believing you could make a difference and for making history.

No election is too small. Every vote matters. Every vote counts!
