NYC Celebrates Elizabeth Cady Stanton Day with an evening of special performances and inspiring readings

Two hundred years ago Elizabeth Cady Stanton was born in Johnstown, NY. Her family later settled in Seneca Falls, NY, which became the epicenter of the women’s suffrage movement.

New York City has declared today Elizabeth Cady Stanton day and tonight presents an evening of performances and readings called Declaration of Sentiments: The Remix at historic Cooper Union, a venue that hosted Stanton herself. The event celebrates the document written by Stanton and others in 1848 that ignited the suffrage movement and kicks off the City’s celebration of the 2020 Women’s Suffrage Centennial.Details are at http://www.womensactivism.nyc/ .
